Motherwell sack Alexander on eve of new season

Motherwell have sacked manager Graham Alexander on the eve of the new Scottish Premiership season following a run of poor results.

The Fir Park side saw their Europa Conference League aspirations ended on Thursday at the hands of League of Ireland Premier Division side Sligo Rovers.

A 1-0 defeat at home followed by another 2-0 loss at The Showgrounds resulted in several 'Well fans demonstrating their frustrations towards Alexander.

Motherwell had won just five of their last 23 competitive outings under Alexander, a sequence of results that ultimately cost the former Scotland international and assistant Chris Lucketti their jobs.

The Steelmen - who have won only once in their last 14 away games - kick off their new Scottish Premiership campaign at St Mirren on Sunday.
