By Russell Gordon It’s fair to say the point collected at Rugby Park was an unexpected bonus, but as we welcomed the new year, the same couldn’t be said about the visit of fellow strugglers Dunfermline Athletic for a match that was very much of the six-pointer variety. Defeat in Imrie’s debut in the Cappielow dugout would’ve seen Morton drop to the foot of the table b

Sounds boring on the surface perhaps, bu

Arbroath vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton head north to take on high-flying Arbroath as the curtain falls on the 2021/22 season.

Morton v Inverness Caledonian Thistle - Match Preview by Russell Gordon. The penultimate round of the Championship’s regular season, and Morton’s final home game sees Billy Dodds’ Inverness coming down the A9 to slum it at Cappielow for a third time this season.

Match Preview - Morton vs Hamilton (16th April)

Morton v Hamilton- Match Preview by Russell Gordon. An afternoon of celebration awaits at Cappielow as Morton mark the 100th anniversary of our Scottish Cup win with the visit of Hamilton Accies. But there is also a job to be done, with the hosts requiring only a point to secure their Championship status for another year, whilst Accies require a win to do likewise. After Morton’s exorcising of the Stark’s Park ghost last weekend, both sides will also be eyeing Raith Rovers’ trip to Fir

(Photo-gmfc.net) 1922 And All That- Morton’s Finest Hour And A Half By Russell Gordon One hundred years to the day. A lot has happened since- we’ve had another World War, the creation of the BBC and the NHS, the reconvening of a Scottish Parliament, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union, the formation of the EU and Britain’s decision to join and its decision to leave, not to mention the death of our opponents from that famous day amongst many other chang

Raith Rovers v Morton - Match Preview by Russell Gordon. It’s football for a fiver in Fife again as Morton visit the Kingdom for their penultimate away trip of the campaign to face newly crowned SPFL Trust Challenge Cup winners, Raith Rovers. With a place in the promotion play-offs probably out of reach by this stage for Morton, the focus will be on collecting three points to rid us of any lingering relegation fears, which weren’t helped by the Rovers’ capitulation to Dunfermline in th

The Morton Disabled Supporters’ Association- A Chat With Bryan Purdue… by Russell Gordon It’s fair to say that there have been a number of welcome developments at Morton in recent months, with the arrival of Dougie Imrie and the team’s subsequent improved form that has seen us climb the table to the brink of survival in the Championship with a bit to spare, and hopefully with no need for last season’s brinksmanship. However, one change that has perhaps gone under the radar slightl

The TV cameras again rock up in Greenock tonight with Morton welcoming BBC Scotland and league leaders Kilmarnock to Cappielow as the Championship title race heads into its final straight, and the hosts look to finally dispel any lingering fears of relegation and a season of slumming it with wee Falkirk.

Match Preview - Dunfermline vs Morton (19th March)

Dunfermline vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Dougie Imrie’s men head to the ‘Kingdom of Fife’ this evening in the knowledge that one more win should guarantee that Championship football will return to Inverclyde next season. Late goals from Gavin Reilly and Robbie Muirhead secured an empathic win for the Sinclair Street side against Partick last Saturday, sparking wild celebrations inside Cappielow. Ton fans could be forgiven for hypothesising that one more win, either again
