Motherwell appoint Kettlewell as new manager

Motherwell have appointed Stuart Kettlewell as their new manager after he led the side to back-to-back Scottish Premiership victories.

The former Ross County boss was placed in interim charge after Steven Hammell was sacked in the wake of their Scottish Cup defeat to Raith Rovers but now takes over permanently on a deal until May 2024.

Under Kettlewell, the Fir Park club beat St Mirren 2-1, their first league win since October, then impressed in a 2-0 victory over Hearts. ​​​​​​

Kettlewell, who will name his assistant in due course, said: "I'm immensely proud. It's been a whirlwind eight or nine days.

"I had a burning desire to take the job to see if I can take this club forward and be a catalyst to what we hope will be a good chapter for the football club.

"I genuinely think I come to Motherwell a better manager than what I was previously and I hope that is something that appeals to the Motherwell supporters.

"There's some real good players here. I wouldn't have taken the job had I felt there was a real issue with the playing squad
