There is bound to be a heightened interest from Motherwell fans who will be eager to hear the thoughts of our manager after he was linked with the job at Aberdeen.

Craig Paterson, now working as a BBC pundit, is best known to Motherwell fans for the huge contribution he made to our successful Scottish Cup run in 1991.

His thoughtful insights have helped him to become one of the mainstays of BBC Scotland’s football team.

His views of the disciplinary system and on the McLeish proposals are bound to be probed by the audience.
