Former Scotland skipper Gary McAllister has admitted he would like to return to Motherwell as manager.

McAllister was sounded out about the job two years ago before Well chairman John Boyle appointed Mark McGhee, who was unveiled as Aberdeen boss on Friday.

The former Liverpool player was not interested in taking over then for family reasons and amid concerns over working on a small budget at Fir Park, but McAllister, who began his career at home town club Motherwell before moving to Leicester in 1985, is looking to get back into management after an 11-month spell at Leeds ended in December.

The former Coventry boss said: "Motherwell are my club and the job appeals to me.

"I spoke to the chairman before Mark got the job, but we’ll need to see what happens in the next few days."
