McCall concentrating on Motherwell despite Sheffield Utd interest

Stuart McCall has denied that there is any truth in reports which have linked him with a possible return with his former club Sheffield United, according to The Football League website.

The Bramall Lane Club sacked manager Danny Wilson earlier this month, despite still being in the League One play-off places, after a run of one win in six saw automatic promotion hopes dashed.

The current Motherwell manager played at the South Yorkshire club in the twilight of his career and made over 70 appearances, including a First Division play-off final and two cup semi-finals in 2003 and has been touted for a possible return.

However the 48-year-old Scot, who signed a two-year extension to his contract at Motherwell played down the prospects of such a move. “I think it comes from the fact that I had five great years at Sheffield United. It’s a smashing club but I’m certainly enjoying my time at Motherwell. They are in the play-offs and have got a great chance of getting up and hopefully they do.”

Motherwell are currently sitting second in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier and reached a Scottish Cup Final under McCall in 2011.

Sheffield United, currently under the stewardship of caretaker manager Chris Morgan, travel on Crewe Alexandra tonight to continue their promotion push.
