McGhee Confirms McAlister Interest

A story on the BBC website has confirmed a Daily Star report that Motherwell are interested in Jim McAlister but that there has been no official approach.

Well manager Mark McGhee isn't happy that the interest has been made public and is quoted as saying: "It was on record earlier in the season that I am a fan of the lad McAlister. But it is premature and unfair of [McGhee is misquoted here, he actually says it's unfair ON Morton - you can hear this if you listen to the interview linked to below] Morton to discuss where we are with it as we have not made an official offer. We do not want to unsettle the lad at his present club."

According to a post by dirty dingus (great name) on the unofficial messageboard Tom Callaghan - McAlister's representative - claims that Morton want £250,000 for Jim in an article in today's Daily Star.
