Lawless rejoins Rovers on loan
Motherwell youngster Steven Lawless has rejoined Second Division Albion Rovers on a one-month loan deal.
Lawless, who spent time at Cliftonhill last season and helped Rovers gain promotion from the Third Division, will initially spend 28 days at the Coatbridge club.
He made his second ‘debut’ on Tuesday night against Dumbarton, scoring in a 2-1 defeat. Ironically, the Sons opened the scoring thanks to fellow ‘Well player Ross McKinnon.
The 19-year old told motherwellfc.co.uk, “The aim is to go and play and get a couple of games under my belt as there hasn’t been a great deal of opportunities here what with the team doing so well.
“It’s actually good for me that it’s Albion Rovers; as soon as I heard they were looking to take me back I jumped at the chance as it’s a good club. They are struggling at the minute but it’s a decent team who should be doing better than the current league position would suggest.
“It was obviously good for me to score on my first appearance but at the same time, disappointing to lose as I felt we deserved something. We had a couple of decent chances when it went we pulled it back to 2-1 but it wasn’t to be.
“My contract here expires at the end of the current season so the aim is to go and get myself sharp and come back to Motherwell, make an impact and hopefully get another deal.”
The club can also confirm that defender Ross McKinnon has extended his loan deal with Dumbarton for a further two months although Steven Howarth has returned from Alloa Athletic.
