FORMER Motherwell hitman David Clarkson has admitted he would love to return to Fir Park one day – if the club would have him.
The 26-year-old spent nearly 10 years with the Steelmen, netting 56 competitive goals for the first team after making his debut in 2002.
Although he left Lanarkshire in 2009, Well continue to mean something special to Clarky, a nephew of the late Phil O'Donnell.
He said: "I'd love to go back to Motherwell. It's a club that is very close to my heart and I loved my time there.
"I keep tabs on how they are doing and I always want them to do well. I speak to Stevie Hammell quite a lot and like to keep in touch with the other lads including Stephen Craigan.
"I'd happily go back to Fir Park. Ultimately, they would need to want me back. But if I got the chance to return and finish my career there that would be great."
Clarky also revealed he has high hopes for his former side's European campaign as Stuart McCall's men get set for their debut in the Champions League qualifiers.
The draw takes place on July 20 and Well could find themselves paired with Fenerbahce, Dynamo Kiev, FC Copenhagen or Panathinaikos.
The striker, who played in the Europa League with Well in 2008, said: "It will be a great experience for the boys to play in a Champions League qualifier.
"I had a taste of it in the Europa League, albeit it was just for the one round against Nancy. It could be one game, it could be more, who knows? But they have done really well this year and deserve it.
"They will enjoy it no matter what happens. You never know where it could lead for them."
