Graham Alexander: Motherwell boss signs long-term deal at Fir Park | Football News

Motherwell manager Graham Alexander has signed a new deal until at least 2025.

The former Scottish international, who joined the club last January, has taken Motherwell to fourth in the Scottish Premiership this season.

Alexander led Fir Park’s side to 59 Premiership points in the last calendar year – third-highest in the top flight – and won 47.8% of his games at the club.

“I am delighted to sign a new contract here at Motherwell and continue the progress we have all made over the past 12 months,” he said.

“Chris (Lucketti) and I have received nothing but great support from everyone related to the club, which has definitely helped us focus on our work.

“I have a brilliant relationship with the people I work with every day and the environment that we are allowed to develop here to produce results is particularly rewarding.

“I also want to thank the president and the board for showing their faith in us from day one to be a success in this role.

“We know we have a lot more to achieve here. We will be committed to working harder than ever to serve Motherwell in the best possible way.”

Alexander is the first manager outside of Celtic and Rangers to win three Premiership Coach of the Month awards in a calendar year, with only Neil Lennon, Steven Gerrard, Alex McLeish, Brendan Rodgers and Gordon Strachan to do the same.

His first game since putting pen to paper will be in Ross County on January 18, when the clubs return from the winter break.

“We have been absolutely delighted with Graham’s contribution since joining our club 12 months ago and are thrilled with what he is trying to build with us,” added Motherwell president Jim McMahon.

“He is talented, hardworking, devoted and fully accepts Motherwell’s multifaceted role.

“The board will continue to support him to help us achieve our goals both on and off the pitch.”
