It has been a month of change at Motherwell FC.
Defeat to Kilmarnock led to manager Stephen Robinson’s decision to call it a day at the club, much to the surprise and shock of everyone in ML1.
Club legend Keith Lasley had the task of keeping the show on the road away to local rivals Hamilton Academical soon after, as the Steelmen tried to put a gap between themselves and the foot of the Scottish Premiership table.
With a January transfer window already open, the club could not wait around to find Stephen Robinson’s replacement.
Enter former Scotland international Graham Alexander, last with Salford City, to take over the reins and immediately try and breathe life into the team ahead of a difficult trip to St Mirren.
Young defender Max Johnston has stood out since coming into the first-team plans in the summer.
The son of former footballer Allan Johnston is a promising full-back from the Motherwell academy, and is pushing to be in contention for his debut, despite having just turned 17.
It was also squad photo day at the club in December. Covid-19 restrictions meant the whole group couldn’t get together for the traditional photograph, so the team had to get creative.
