Match Preview - Ayr United vs Morton (15th January)

Ayr United vs Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. What a difference a new manager and a couple of decent results makes. Two teams that have stunk out the Championship for the last couple of seasons are suddenly both going into Saturday's match at an eerie Somerset Park with a degree of optimism as the bounce at both clubs starts to take effect- a welcome change in Morton's case, certainly. With Government restrictions still keeping the crowd at a maximum of 500, there are no

Match Preview - Morton vs Dunfermline (8th January)

Morton vs Dunfermline – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton will get back into the swing of things tomorrow after a less-than-hectic festive period. Dougie Imrie’s side were scheduled to face both Queen of the South and Partick Thistle on Boxing Day and 2nd January respectively, with both sides requesting postponements due to COVID-related issues. New manager Imrie will be officially welcomed to Cappielow by a reduced crowd of 500 and will be looking to this fixture as the perfect o

Match Preview - Partick Thistle vs Morton (2nd January)

Partick Thistle vs Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. As we leave 2021 and enter 2022, Dougie Imrie will look to build upon his solid start as Morton boss as they first foot Partick Thistle at Firhill. Imrie may well find that any hopes of that are scuppered by the weather however, with the Maryhill club already having announced a 10am pitch inspection ahead of Sunday's clash. With the weather forecast not looking terribly promising, and the Jags' previous home fixture aga

Match Preview - Morton vs QOTS (26th December)

Morton vs Queen of the South – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. The excitement and galvanisation of the Morton support after news broke of Dougie Imrie’s return to Cappielow lasted less than 24 hours, as further COVID restrictions were announced. The ramifications of these measures mean that only five hundred of the Cowshed faithful will be present to welcome the new gaffer into his post. While tuning in to listen to the timeless patter of Andy

Match Preview - Arbroath vs Morton (18th December)

Arbroath vs Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. With no sign of movement on the managerial front, it's expected that Derek Anderson will again lead Morton as they look to make amends for last Saturday's debacle against Inverness when they travel up the east coast to face an Arbroath team that are hoping to go ten games undefeated and with more than one eye on a place in the promised land of next season's Premiership. Squad News Brian McLean is still likely to miss out f

Five of the Best- Scottish Cup Upsets

(Photo- Source Unknown)   Five of the Best- Scottish Cup Upsets   by Russell Gordon   The Scottish Cup. Quite simply the greatest competition in sport, never mind football. And with Morton's involvement in this season's competition starting (and most probably ending) this weekend, we can still at least dream of Kyle Jacobs leading the lads up the stairs at Hampden on the 21st of May to repeat the feat of their predecessors from a century previous.   Whilst the gre
