Stuart McCall insisted a disappointing final day result against St Johnstone should not overshadow what has been an impressive campaign for Motherwell.
Motherwell suffered a 2-0 defeat to the Saints after goals from Liam Craig and Nigel Hasselbaink.
McCall was unhappy with the result but keen to focus on the positives of the campaign that has seen them finish as runners-up in the SPL.
He said: "I was disappointed we lost the game.
"There are no excuses. St Johnstone had the bit between the teeth. I don't like losing anything but we have to take a reality check.
"It's not been about today, it's been about the season."
McCall has been linked with Doncaster and Sheffield United but said he was planning for the future at Fir Park.
He added: "It's all speculation and until someone asks to speak to me, that's what it is.
"We are certainly planning. We gave Simon Ramsden a two-year deal a couple of days ago.
"We will hopefully tie up a deal tomorrow for a new player coming in. You've got to be planning."
