Match Preview

McCall monitoring Gordon situation Motherwell manager Stuart McCall has admitted interest in the situation of fit-again former Scotland goalkeeper Craig Gordon. Gordon has been training with Rangers for several months after a second operation on damaged knee tendons saw him overcome an injury that threatened to end his career. The 31-year-old, who only played once in his final season at Sunderland, has been without a club for almost two years but has declared himself fit and has been talking to clubs. Former Motherwell goalkeeper Andy Goram, one of McCall's ex-Rangers team-mates, claimed in his newspaper column that Fir Park would be the ideal destination for Gordon to resurrect his career, given that England's John Ruddy and Republic of Ireland cap Darren Randolph have flourished there in recent years. The position has not been so settled this season, with Gunnar Nielsen struggling for form since joining on a two-year deal last summer, while Lee Hollis has missed much of the campaign through injury. And McCall did not rule out a move for the former Hearts goalkeeper, who cost Sunderland B#9million. McCall said: "I believe Craig is in at Rangers and looking fit and sharp. I would imagine, if his fitness isn't in question, he will have far bigger clubs than us chasing him. It's an interesting one, but all the goalkeeping dealings are down to (goalkeeping coach) Gordon Marshall. "But there is no doubt, prior to his injuries, he was world class. He is in at Rangers and, I know they have two good goalkeepers, and it would maybe be something they would look at. It would all depend, but we will wait and see." When asked directly if he was interested, McCall said: "I think it would be crazy to say you are not interested in somebody. But, then again, we would be interested in Wayne Rooney if he popped up next week. "Nothing has been happening from our point of view. I think Andy was just saying Motherwell would be a good fit for anybody to come because most people who come enjoy themselves. It was certainly a good move for Andy. Nobody would have expected him to move on to Man United after coming to Motherwell, and that's what happened. "I fully understood and appreciated what Andy was saying and, if Andy wants to chip in with some of Craig's wages, then I would be more than happy." McCall has more pressing concerns with up to eight players missing through injury for Saturday's Scottish Premiership clash at St Mirren Park. Henir Anier and Craig Reid picked up knocks in the midweek win at Inverness and will be joined for a fitness test by an unnamed player who suffered an injury scare in training, while Hollis, James McFadden, Stuart Carswell, Paul Lawson and Simon Ramsden remain out. But home boss Danny Lennon has bigger worries as his side occupy the relegation play-off spot - a fact that surprises McCall. "For one reason or other they have not got the points that certainly I thought they would got with the squad they have got," he said. "Having said that they have brought some youngsters through and they probably think they should have more points than they have got. "They are in a fight. They have certainly got the players to fight their way out of it, but we can only look after ourselves. We always have it tough when we go to Paisley." Meanwhile, Lennon is happy for his side to be tipped to remain in the play-off spot. The Buddies are in 11th place going into the game which is their last fixture before the split. However, Lennon pointed out that his team are only six points behind seventh-placed Hibernian and insists his players have all the necessary attributes to get out of trouble, regardless of what pundits may say. "There are six points separating the bottom five teams (above relegation-bound Hearts) and a lot of people have us pencilled in for a play-off position and that suits us fine," said Lennon. "That position hasn't been settled yet. We certainly know what to do and it is in our own capable hands to go and do it. "I know the character and the fight of the players in the dressing room. "At this stage of the season a lot of people will mention character and fight and in my time my players have shown that. "They have managed to beat every top-flight club, they managed to beat Celtic in the League Cup semi-final and they showed character and fight to lift the League Cup and the young players have shown that this season as well. "But having said that, we know we must play football and our best performances have come when we have followed the game plan. "But with six games to go we have to make sure we have to bring those strengths out." Goalkeeper Marian Kello remains on the sidelines for St Mirren. The Buddies number one is still carrying a groin injury and replacement Chris Dilo will again take over in goal.
