Former Rangers defender Maurice Ross has left Motherwell’s coaching staff after becoming disillusioned with his role in Graham Alexander’s staff at Fir Park.

The ex-Ger initially joined the Steelmen as Head of 18s to 21s before joining the first-team staff but changes to his role have led him to puruse other opportunities.

Ross confessed that the changes in recent month had made it the right time for him to leave as he wished the new coaching staff well for the future.

“I feel the time is right for me to pursue other challenges in my career, given how my role has changed here in recent months,” Ross said [Motherwell].

“I wish the new management, the team and the club all the best, and thank everyone for the time I’ve spent with Motherwell.”

 

New ‘Well boss Alexander thanked Ross for his time at the club, admitting he can understand why the ex-Ibrox man decided to move on and seek new opportunities elsewhere, saying: “First of all, I would like to thank Maurice for his commitment and professionalism since I joined the club,”

“I can understand why he’s made this decision. I have nothing but good wishes for him going forward. I am sure he will continue to have a successful coaching career.”
