McCall keeping champagne on ice
Scottish Premier League,
Stuart McCall is not celebrating just yet despite watching his Motherwell side virtually ensure a Champions League qualifying spot.
Tuesday's 1-0 victory at Hearts moved Motherwell eight points clear of fourth-placed Dundee United. The Terrors must beat Rangers tonight, Celtic on Sunday then Well on the final day of the season to leapfrog McCall's side and steal third place.
"I've said to the boys, there are no celebrations yet," said McCall.
"Having said that, if Dundee United manage to win the three games then they will deserve to finish third."
Chief executive Leeann Dempster believes Motherwell deserve a place in the Champions League.
"We've got a small squad and the boys have worked hard all season, a great management team," said Dempster.
"We've been quite lucky with injuries and some might say we are lucky to be in this position, but I don't think so. I think we've worked hard to get here."
