Motherwell have issued an apology to fans after confusion over the future of manager Stuart Kettlewell.

The Fir Park club triggered a one year extension in his deal, which was originally set to end in May 2024,  after he kept the club in the top flight last season.

Confusion surrounding the Steelman’s manager arose from last night’s club AGM, but the club have been quick to move to clarify the situation.

A statement on the club’s official website from Chairman Jim McMahon read: “We would like to apologise to both our fans and Stuart for not properly communicating the terms of the extension in May last year and for the uncertainty this has clearly caused.

“Although during the 12 months of his time here there has been some highs and lows, we firmly believe that Stuart can take this group of players and the club forward.

“He came in at a difficult point last season and rejuvenated everyone at the club. This season, we are in a position to move up the table towards the end of the campaign.

“He has worked tremendously hard to this point and we will continue to back him.

“I ask that everyone gets behind the team as we push into the last segment of this season. The support this season, at home and on the road, has been impressive and we’re all hugely appreciative of it.

“We will need that as we head into a crucial point of the season.”
