Roger Hynd

Roger HyndRoger Hynd became Motherwell manager in December 1977 and became the seventh person to hold the position. As a player, he played for Rangers, Crystal Palace and Birmingham City. With Rangers he managed to play in 48 games scoring 5 goals, he even featured for the ‘Gers in a losing Cup Winners’ Cup final, in disgust at losing the match, he threw his medal into the Nuremberg crowd only to discover the winners and losers’ badges were identical but sadly his was gone forever. In his short reign as Motherwell manager he finished the season in sixth place but his first full campaign wouldn’t be plain sailing as the club really couldn’t grind out the results needed. The post was relinquished in November 1978 after a mere eleven months in charge. Of course the club would end up relegated at the end of the season. The eighth ‘Well manager came in the shape of former Scotland gaffer Ally McLeod.
