Kettlewell on Bair's story, contract pile-up and goals in bottom six

Motherwell manager Stuart Kettlewell has been speaking to the media ahead of his side's trip to Aberdeen on Saturday.

Here are the key points:

  • Believes Theo Bair fully deserves his place in the PFA Scotland Premiership team of the season, calling his rise "arguably one of the biggest stories in Scottish football".

  • Praises the striker for his work ethic and studying of the game, but stressed he hasn't "achieved anything" and there's more development to come.

  • Kettlewell says he's attracted to players like Bair who have been written off - not to prove people wrong, but to instil belief in someone.

  • He is keen to have a "set group" to start next season, but admits it's difficult with so many contracts up and interest in some of his squad.

  • "Top six is gone" with the aim now to finish seventh and improve on the points tally they accrued last season.
