Motherwell administrator Bryan Jackson has admitted he is more pessimistic than ever of finding a new buyer for the club. Local businessman Ian Adams was the only genuine interested party and Jackson gave him eight weeks to raise enough money to make a bid. But that time limit has now lapsed, and there seems little chance of a new bidder emerging in the near future. Jackson said:
“I don’t think there is any chance of the club folding in the short term and that is why we have avoided having a fire sale of players. I realise the fans will be worried there is no buyer. If the club stays up and the club is traded at a profit then Motherwell could stay in administration for a few years. I’m quietly optimistic I’ll find someone by the summer. But if that doesn’t happen, and the club is relegated, you are looking at things getting far more difficult.”
Meanwhile, Terry Butcher has spoken about the latest speculation surrounding James McFadden:
“James has also been booked five times in competitive games. He has an edge to him and there are times when I would like to take a bit of it out of his game but that’s the way he is.”
