Omar Daley has expressed his delight at teaming up with Stuart McCall once more, after completing his move to Motherwell this week.
Daley has previously stated that he’s played some of his best football under the current ‘Well gaffer, and the Jamaican winger is hoping that continues as the former Bradford City duo team up in North Lanarkshire.
“I’ve known Stuart from our time in Bradford, and he always gave me confidence,” The 30-year old confided. “I played some very good football there and always did my best so I want to come here and do that again.

“His man-management skills are very good, he knows how to deal with the players – and he is honest.”
“I like the style of football the manager tries to play, and the way Motherwell pass the ball, so I’m looking forward to getting out there and playing with my new team-mates.”
The former Bradford and Preston North End player is in line to face St. Johnstone after finally completing what proved to be a convoluted move to Scotland.
A deal was agreed in principle a couple of weeks ago, but due to issues with his work permit and visas – exacerbated due to the player’s international involvement – he missed out on last week’s trip to Celtic Park.
Daley admits that it is a relief to have the move done and dusted, having signed a two-year deal.
“It was a long process,” the 65-times capped speed-merchant bemoaned. “But I’m here now, everything is signed, and I can’t wait to get on the field.
“It could have been done quicker but I had to go to leave the country and play a friendly match against Colombia, and that sort of set things back a bit.
“I’ve come out of a tournament with Jamaica and played in a friendly too so I have plenty of games under my belt and I’m ready to go.”
