Caretaker boss no interest in Motherwell job full time

Motherwell caretaker boss Gordon Young insists he has no interest in becoming manager on a permanent basis. Young has been handed the reins on a temporary basis following Craig Brown's departure to Aberdeen.

Motherwell's new manager will be their sixth in less than five years with Terry Butcher, Maurice Malpas, Mark McGhee, Jim Gannon and Brown all having spells in charge.

Young, who is head of youth development at Motherwell, has ruled himself out of the running for the job.

"I'm just proud and privileged that I can do that job for the club until we get somebody in," said Young.

"I really appreciate the job I've got, I think I've got the skill set for that job.

"Working with Craig and Archie will stand me in good stead for further down the line in my career.

"I wouldn't rule anything out about where my career is going to go but I'm certainly focused on the youth development and I would be more than happy to help any new manager coming in."
