John Hughes keen on Motherwell managerial vacancy

Hughes keen on 'working-class' Well

Former Hibernian and Falkirk manager John Hughes has declared his interest in the Motherwell vacancy.

Hughes left Hibs in October by mutual consent, while Craig Brown parted company with Motherwell to take up the managerial reigns at Aberdeen.

Gordon Young is looking after first-team affairs at Fir Park since Brown's departure but has ruled himself out of the running for the permanent post.

"It's certainly a job that would appeal to me," said Hughes.

"I feel it's a real, hard working-class town and that appeals to me because the values that these people have and usually the supporters have are real, hard working class and that's right up my street."

Hughes knows he is likely to face competition for the role.

"It will be the usual names; myself, Gus (MacPherson), Jimmy Calderwood. There'll be one or two come from outfield, that's just usual.

"I think my CV speaks for itself - Scottish Cup final, two teams in Europe in the last two years. There are not many other managers that can say that and put that in their CV. I can do that.

"If people are doing their homework and they're looking at what's going about then the CV stands up for itself."
