McAlister Not For Sale

On Sunday the News Of The World claimed that Motherwell were interested in Morton winger Jim McAlister and that they would be prepared to offer Martyn Corrigan and cash. An article by Roger Graham and Chris Fitzgerald in today's Greenock Telegraph confirms that Motherwell did make an enquiry but they were told that Jim wasn't for sale.

The article quotes Motherwell boss (and ex-Morton player) Mark McGhee who admits that he made an enquiry but that it was knocked back.

The Tele' also spoke to Douglas Rae who seemed upset at the way the enquiry was made. The article ends with a quote from Rae, who says : "We're trying to build a team here, not dismantle one. I doubt Motherwell could afford Jim McAlister." It would seem that any bid for a Morton player would have to be an offer we couldn't refuse.
