Motherwell FC is tonight pleased to confirm the signing of midfielder Stephen Pearson until the end of the current season.
The 10-times capped former Scotland International started his career at Fir Park and was involved in a group of exciting young players including James McFadden, Stevie Hammell, Paul Quinn and David Clarkson.
He eventually moved to Celtic in January 2004 before spells south of the border with Derby County, Stoke City and Bristol City.
During that run he was famed for scoring the “£60 million” Playoff Final goal for the Rams against West Brom back in 2007, taking his then side to the Barclay’s Premier League.
He trained with Motherwell during the summer but signed for Indian Premier League side Kerala Blasters, playing 17 games, before the season finished last month.

He has signed a deal until the end of the current season and subject to international clearance, will go straight into the squad for Wednesday night’s game at Celtic Park.
Stephen, who will wear squad number 48 for the next four months, told motherwellfc.co.uk: “I am delighted to be back, I’ve got great memories of this place from the past.
“It’s a great club and I am thrilled to rejoin and hopefully help the club push up the table.
“I’ve been playing regularly for the last few months and feel fit.
“I have trained with the lads not only during the summer but over the last week and I am just desperate to get involved now.”
