Motherwell cut prices: £15 for Old Firm games, £10 the rest

Motherwell are 'taking the lead' to help cut prices in Scottish football by reducing entrance for Old Firm fixtures to £15 for all adults at Fir Park.

The reduction for Rangers and Celtic matches is a £10 saving for most fans, and
under-12s will be admitted free with adults and juvenile season-ticket holders to all other Clydesdale Bank Premier League games.

Adults will be charged just £10 to sit in the South Stand for matches against Kilmarnock, Inverness, Dundee United, Falkirk and St Mirren.

Motherwell chief executive Ian Stillie, who will form a committee with fans to look at season ticket prices, said: "Football in Scotland has become too pricey, particularly for families.

'Motherwell Football Club has taken the lead on the issue, and we would encourage our SPL partners to reciprocate the changes - not only for our fans but for their own supporters.'

Meanwhile, Motherwell midfielder Steven McGarry has his sights set on propelling his club to third place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

Well could go from eighth to third on Saturday if they win at Kilmarnock. 'If you examine the games we've played in any detail, we are probably three or four points down and what we realistically could or should be on,' said McGarry.

'We lost to Aberdeen at home when the very, very least we deserved was a draw and we battered Dundee United and could only come away with a point.

'Taking that into account, we could already be sitting third in the table, five off the top two. What that gives us is a determination to go to Rugby Park this weekend and

'A lot of what we achieved last year was based on beating teams who are on a
similar level and stature to us - your Kilmarnocks of this world - and with two or three just like that in the next few weeks then picking up maximum points is our target.'
