Wolves chairman Steve Morgan insisted the club were right to sack Mick McCarthy after the appointment of his assistant Terry Connor as their new manager until the end of the season.

Connor was named as the new boss at Molineux on Friday with 13 games left to preserve the club's Barclays Premier League status. A host of managers were linked with the role, including Steve Bruce, Alan Curbishley, Walter Smith and Brian McDermott, but the club have opted to promote from within.

Morgan said: "This is a very important appointment and this is not one you can make on a knee-jerk response. We have seen a number of people, nowhere near the amount of people that has been in the media. We went through the process and narrowed it down and it became clear from the way the players were responding to Terry that he was the right man."
