Robinson appointed Motherwell boss

Wednesday 15th March 2017

Motherwell have named Stephen Robinson as their new manager ahead of Saturday's Ladbrokes Premiership game with St Johnstone at Fir Park.

The former Oldham boss had been in interim charge since the departure of Mark McGhee and has now landed the role on a contract until summer 2018 after topping a five-man shortlist.

Robinson, 42, initially became Motherwell assistant manager in February 2015 and the 42-year-old has also worked alongside Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill.

He told the Motherwell website: “I am absolutely delighted and proud to lead this football club, a club with a rich history in the Scottish game.

“My mission from the board is absolutely clear. Firstly, to ensure the team have a strong finish to the Premiership season and finish as high as we possibly can between now and May.

“Then, to help shape the club going forward with a strong emphasis on hard work, discipline and a real passion and desire for Motherwell FC that the fans can get behind and be proud of.”
