Stuart McCall: The man that Sheffield United want as their new manager

The Scottish Premier League manager of the year has guided his side into the Europa League qualifiers for the second successive season after securing the runners-up slot behind Celtic.

Motherwell chief executive Leeann Dempster said: "I can confirm we had an approach from Sheffield United regarding Stuart McCall on Monday night."

McCall spent two years as a player at Bramall Lane before becoming assistant to Neil Warnock between 2004 and 2007, when the Blades were relegated from the Premier League on the final day.

His first job in management was with another former club, Bradford City, before replacing Craig Brown at Fir Park in December 2010.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat at St Johnstone on Sunday, McCall said: "I think when you've had a decent season, or a couple of decent seasons which I've been fortunate to have, then speculation will grow.

"As far as I'm concerned, my full focus is on here all the time."

United are seeking a permanent successor to Danny Wilson, who departed in early April, with former player Chris Morgan taking temporary charge in the interim.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
