Midfielder Keith Lasley has chosen to return to Motherwell after turning down the chance to join Kilmarnock.

The 26-year-old, released by Plymouth Argyle, has signed a two-year deal at Fir Park, two years after leaving the Lanarkshire club.
Lasley had been training with Kilmarnock and impressed manager Jim Jefferies during trial games.
But Motherwell stepped in with a late offer and Lasley may play against Hibs at Easter Road on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Motherwell are still looking for a replacement for left-back Steve Hammell, who left the club in the summer.
Ryan Dickson, who has played just three times before being released by Plymouth, featured in a bounce game against an American college side but was not offered another chance at Fir Park.
Motherwell manager Maurice Malpas said: "I am desperate for a left-back since Stevie left and I have to admit I thought I would have had one in by now.
"We are looking at tapes and looking at games and it has been like that for the last couple of weeks.
"Now we are getting nearer to the transfer window, I am frustrated but not nervous about it.
"Just before deadline day last season, we brought Alan McCormack and Brian McLean in and they turned out to be great players for us. So, touch wood, that can happen again."
