  1. (Photo- Gary Bradley) Jim McAlister- A Tribute by Russell Gordon After penning my thoughts on the erstwhile Morton Chief Executive Dave MacKinnon's departure on Thursday I had hoped that one day I'd be able to write more fondly of someone departing Morton for pastures new. I didn't expect to be doing so only a few of days later, though. Whilst there remains a number of questions to be answered in relation to the shock announcement, those questions are for another day. After 342 starts, 19 substitute appearances, 23 goals, 8 yellow cards

  2. So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye... by Russell Gordon Dave MacKinnon (Photo- The Scottish Sun) So, after twenty eventful months, Dave MacKinnon's tenure as Chief Executive of Morton is now coming to an end, somewhat acrimoniously some might say. After Warren Hawke's spell in office ended with the JJ/Charlie Telfer soap opera being played out in front of the national media on the day Falkirk were emptied into League One (stop laughing at the back, there), Crawford Rae looked towards his old friend; former Rangers and Arsenal defender, and ex-Dun

  3. Morton vs Dundee – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton head into Saturday’s match looking to continue the momentum generated by an excellent performance and result at Tynecastle last week. Craig McGuffie’s outstanding strike from the edge of the box gave The Ton the lead after fifty-three minutes, with a header from Jamie Walker securing a share of the spoils for both sides. Anton McElhone freshened his side up, lining up in a 4-3-3 and reintroducing Kyle Jacobs in the heart of midfield after his injury lay-off. Despite conceding chances in the opening stages of the first half, Mor

  4. Queen of the South vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton travel down the M74 to face Queen of the South on Saturday, looking to continue their positive run of form and momentum generated in the wake of David Hopkin’s shock resignation. In the minutes preceding our last meeting with the Dumfries side, current Morton chairman Crawford Rae announced that interim manager Anton McElhone, with the assistance of senior players Chris Millar, Jim McAlister and Brian McLean, would remain in charge for the rest of the season. This decision appears to have been vindicated thu

  5. Morton vs Ayr United – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. It’s crunch time at Cappielow. Saturday’s match is arguably the most important match of the season thus far. It’s eighth against ninth, with both teams only recording one win in their previous ten matches. Morton will take the positives from back-to-back draws against Hearts and Dundee, however the predicament of nine league matches without a win will still weigh heavily on the mind of Anton McElhone and his squad. The shift to 4-3-3 appears to have had somewhat of a rejuvenating effect on the Morton squad and the performanc

  6. Morton’s League Cup Semi Final 2016 – Where Are They Now? by Dean McKinnon. 22nd October 2016. Hampden Park. I would love to offer a personal insight into the emotion of standing in our national stadium watching Jim Duffy lead his Morton team out in our first semi-final appearance for thirty-five years, but unfortunately I was not in attendance. I watched from afar on a stream, having accepted an invitation to work abroad a few months earlier. Staring ruefully at the TV in a living room in Moscow was not how I envisioned watching one of Morton’s biggest achievements of the 21st
