Stuart McCall: Delighted with campaign

Motherwell suffered a 2-0 defeat to the Saints after goals from Liam Craig and Nigel Hasselbaink.

McCall was unhappy with the result but keen to focus on the positives of the campaign that has seen them finish as runners-up in the SPL.

He said: "I was disappointed we lost the game.

"There are no excuses. St Johnstone had the bit between the teeth. I don't like losing anything but we have to take a reality check.

"It's not been about today, it's been about the season."

McCall has been linked with Doncaster and Sheffield United but said he was planning for the future at Fir Park.

He added: "It's all speculation and until someone asks to speak to me, that's what it is.

"We are certainly planning. We gave Simon Ramsden a two-year deal a couple of days ago.

"We will hopefully tie up a deal tomorrow for a new player coming in. You've got to be planning."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
