Craig Brown committed to Motherwell players

Brown heaped praise on the squad of players he has at Motherwell

Craig Brown says it would be very difficult to leave the group of players he has at Motherwell.

Having rebuffed an approach from Aberdeen, the 70-year-old manager insists he and assistant Archie Knox are happy at Fir Park.

"You can hardly get a better club outside the Old Firm than the potential at Aberdeen," Brown told BBC Scotland.

"If we don't go to Aberdeen, as we've indicated, I think you can take it that we're not likely to be leaving."

Brown and Knox have been working without contracts since they arrived at Motherwell in December 2009.

After a brief discussion with Dons officials on Tuesday the veteran pair decided against being considered as successors to Mark McGhee and Scott Leitch.

With Motherwell sitting fifth in the Scottish Premier League, 13 points better off than Aberdeen and with a game in hand, Brown went on to enthuse about the squad of players he has at Fir Park.

"The response from the Motherwell players is exceptional," he said. "I can't imagine a better-organised and disciplined group of players.

"The enthusiasm of these guys is a very big part in us wanting to stay at Motherwell.

"We know we could do with one or two more but when you have a group who do exactly as you tell them, to give that up would be quite a decision."
