Bristol City lead the chase for Motherwell striker after his outstanding season

MOTHERWELL striker Theo Bair has emerged as a £1million target for clubs in the English Championship.

Bristol City  have taken an interest in the Canadian international in recent weeks. And Mail Sport understands others have also compiled reports on the 15-goal striker after a stunning turnaround in his fortunes.

Discarded by St Johnstone last summer, the 24-year-old was poised to leave Scotland after a miserable spell at McDiarmid Park.

Persuaded to stay put in the SPFL by Motherwell boss Stuart Kettlewell, the striker hit form at the turn of the year — smashing 13 goals in 21 games.

With a year left to run on his deal, the Fir Park club could now be in line for a six-figure windfall if teams down south harden up their interest, with any projected deal likely to be around £800,000 plus add-ons.

Bair acknowledges that he is playing at his best level ever even though he missed a penalty against his old team St Johnstone on Saturday.

“This has been the best season of my life,” he remarked. However, I want to improve on it the next year.

Liam Kelly, the goalkeeper at Fir Park, is reportedly close to accepting a move back to Rangers.

Both Celtic and Rangers have thought of the Scotland international as a backup option to strengthen their native squad contingent, with the hope of being included in Steve Clarke’s squad for Euro 2024.

Before moving to Livingston, the 28-year-old was a member of the Rangers for 12 years. Additionally, discussions have been held with several English teams.
