Laying Down The Law

Players nearing the end of contracts have big decisions to make and a case of deja vu is facing at least one of them at Fir Park

Nicky Law has a big decision to make as his contact is up at the end of the season and he is not minded to say goodbye to Motherwell manager Stuart McCall a second time. When the pair were at Sheffield United and at Bradford City, Law decided against signing a permanent deal at Valley Parade and chose Rotherham instead. He is reluctant to make a similar phone call this summer and admits he is not keen on a move to Rangers. Law picked up his Clydesdale Bank Premier League Player of the month award on Monday, just 24 hours after McCall was announced as manager of the month. The Fir Park side consolidated their second-placed position in the SPL as they went through March unbeaten with wins over Hearts, Dundee and Hibs. Law has scored six goals so far this season and Rangers manager Ally McCoist has the Englishman is on his list of targets for next season. Law said: "I was at Bradford when he was there and I had the choice to stay. The hardest thing I've had to do in my career was ringing the manager up and tell him I was going to sign for Rotherham, when I thought it would be a better move for me. It would certainly be as difficult to do that again because we have a really close working relationship. He has been such a huge help to me and helped my game on again in the two years I have been there. So he is the biggest thing I will be thinking about at the end of the season. There has been no contact (from Rangers). I saw what their manager said but that was it, a link with a big club. I made the point at the time that I had nine big games to go and now we have five. What I will concentrate on is getting Motherwell to stay in second place and at the end of the season I will look at my options then and I certainly haven't ruled out staying either. I will have a good chat with the manager and I will certainly think about staying."
