Former Scotland star Graham Alexander odds on favourite to become new Motherwell manager
Although he was sacked by Salford in October, the team were unbeaten in their first five games and sitting fifth in League Two.
Alexander, who has also managed Preston North End (caretaker), Fleetwood Town and Scunthorpe United, previously had a distinguished career at club level in which he became only the second outfield player in English football history to have made 1000 professional appearances when turning out for Scunthorpe, Luton Town, Preston and Burnley.
It was announced on Tuesday that Motherwell were to interview four candidates to replace Stephen Robinson as gaffer, with Tommy Wright (3/1), Simon Grayson (6/1) and caretaker boss Keith Lasley (10/1) also reportedly in the running.
The new man could be in place for ’Well’s trip to St Mirren this Saturday.
