Liam Kelly hands Motherwell cash boost with short term extension as Rangers transfer target signs on

Liam Kelly has landed Motherwell a cash boost after agreeing a short-term contract extension during the Euros.

The goalkeeper had already agreed to leave the club at the end of last season and is believed to be Rangers-bound with manager Philippe Clement looking to add the ex-Gers man to his ranks to deputise for Jack Butland with Robby McCrorie on the move. But before opting to make any official decision on his future, Kelly will play with Scotland in Steve Clarke's Euro 2024 squad.

The 28-year-old, leaving 'Well on a free, opted to pen a deal with the club to ensure they earn money in compensation from UEFA for all players participating in the tournament in Germany.

Motherwell, according to the BBC, earned around £264,000 from Euro 2020 when both Stephen O'Donnell and Declan Gallagher were both called up and the money pot has increased this year.

The same publication suggests the club could earn as much as £140k for Kelly which would soften the blow somewhat of losing the player on a free this summer.
