9:29:43 AMQuinn waits for McGhee decision
Paul Quinn faces an anxious wait to discover if Motherwell boss Mark McGhee has stripped him of the club captaincy.
The 22-year-old defender was handed the armband following the death of Phil O'Donnell in December.
However, Quinn missed the last five games of the season with a broken jaw following a nightclub incident.
At the time, McGhee was critical of Quinn, but the player said: "I want to be his captain and a main part of what he is going to achieve here."
Quinn should discover his fate when the Motherwell squad return for pre-season training next Thursday.
"I'm not fearing it," he added. "As far as I'm concerned, I will come back in as the captain until the manager says otherwise.
"But, if I'm stripped of the captaincy, I can have no complaints.
"If I keep it then it will be because I did well apart from that mishap.
"I will just take it as it comes and hopefully the manager will make the right decision."
Quinn has recovered from surgery on his jaw and added: "The manager doesn't hold grudges.
"Obviously I know that I need to work hard to get another wee bit of his trust back and show him that it was a misunderstanding.
"I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and that is the only way I can describe it.
"The manager had spoken to me months before it happened about places like that, so I can see why he was irritated and upset by it.
"He was right all along."
