McCormack to ignore Motherwell boo boys

The striker has suffered a torrent of abuse in recent weeks from fans who have accused him of betrayal by signing a pre-contract with Wigan.

But the Scotland Under-21 international is adamant he's signed nothing and will take the stick in his stride despite being labelled Public Enemy No.1 by sections of his own support.

He said: "I've said many times that I'm going to wait until the end of the season to see what happens regarding my future.

"It's been in the papers that I've signed a pre-contract - but I haven't. Most of the fans have turned against me but I'll just keep my head down and get on with it.

"It's disappointing it's turned out that way but that's football.

"We have a huge game against Hibs on Saturday - one we must win - and if we don't then we can forget about finishing third. If we lose it's over."
