Stuart McCall has been named as the new manager of Motherwell.

The former Rangers and Scotland midfielder has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal.

He replaces Craig Brown at the helm after the veteran boss quit for Clydesdale Bank Premier League rivals Aberdeen.

McCall has been out of football management since parting company with Bradford in February.

His first game in charge will be against Hamilton at the weekend.

He said: "I am excited by the job and will give it my all.

"I know Motherwell very well as a club and have long respected what they are all about. They have produced some special talent over the years and done so in an entertaining way.

"It's a family club at the heart of the Scottish game and they are doing all the right things to be successful and sustainable.

"I have inherited a good squad with a proven system for identifying new and young talent.

"I want to build on that starting today to ensure we compete for success in the league, cup and Europe. "
