Mark McGhee has parted ways with struggling Motherwell following a rotten run of results.

Motherwell were hammered 5-1 at home to Dundee on Saturday - the club’s fourth defeat on the bounce - leaving the North Lanarkshire side down in 10th spot, just two points above Inverness, and only three points better off than rock-bottom Hamilton.

Motherwell’s porous defence has now conceded a whopping 53 goals in 26 league games this term, leaking in a staggering 14 in their last three matches, which includes a shambolic 7-2 defeat at Aberdeen, during which the 59-year-old was sent to the stands (see video below).

Two wins in 14 games has now resulted in the Motherwell hierarchy enforcing a change as they bid to avoid the dreaded drop down to the Championship.

Well have placed coach Stephen Robinson in temporary charge of the Steelman while they search for a new manager.

McGhee previously managed Motherwell between 2007 and 2009, leading the club into the UEFA Cup after registering a 3rd place finish.

McGhee returned to Fir Park for a second spell in October 2015, and took the club from the foot of the table up to a 5th place finish, but now leaves them dangling down in 10th spot.
