Hamilton vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon The Championship season kicks off tomorrow with Dougie Imrie’s Morton side travelling to Imrie’s old stomping ground. Imrie, who served tomorrow’s hosts with distinction as both a player and a coach, will lead the visitors out tomorrow in the realistic knowledge that both his current club and his former club face a season of attempting to avoid the Championship basement. With news that potential investment into Greenock Morton fell th

Match Preview - Morton vs Bonnyrigg Rose (23rd July)

Morton vs Bonnyrigg Rose – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton’s League Cup qualification hopes are looking far more positive than they were at tea time on Saturday. The loyal Morton fans who travelled to Leith were rewarded with an impressive performance and result in the Capital midweek, with The Ton winning on penalties following a 1-1 draw. News broke on Thursday that Hibs defender Rocky Bushiri should have been serving a one-match suspension following two bookings in previous L

Match Preview - Hibs vs Morton (20th July)

Hibs vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon With Morton’s early elimination from this season’s League Cup all but confirmed, Dougie Imrie’s side head through to the capital to face off against Hibs. In the wake of taking one point from six against League One sides Falkirk and Clyde, The Ton are now relying on winning their remaining two fixtures, and some very favourable results elsewhere, if they have any chance of progressing to the Second Round of the competition.

Match Preview - Clyde vs Morton (16th July)

Clyde vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon There will be a touch of the familiar for Dougie Imrie as he leads his Morton side on Saturday. Imrie will face Clyde, whom he represented for two years as a player, in the stadium in which he played more than any other. Saturday’s showdown against an already eliminated Clyde should be an opportunity for The Ton to limber up for their trip to Easter Road next midweek, which has become a must-win encounter thanks in no small part to Leagu

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

(Photo- Gary Bradley) The Axe Falls And A New Broom Sweeps Into Town… A Review of Morton’s 2021-22 Season, Part Two.  By Russell Gordon  With the league campaign going from bad to worse, Morton’s fans had the welcome relief of a couple of cup ties to distract them from the more pressing of avoiding the drop from the Championship.  The long journey up to Inverness didn’t get the juices flowing for many though, with a paltry 31 fans making the trip for a game that it would

Out With The Old And In With The New… 

(Photo- Gary Bradley) Out With The Old And In With The New… A Review of Morton’s 2021-22 Season, Part One.  By Russell Gordon.  After the rollercoaster ride that was season 2020-21, most Morton fans would’ve quite happily accepted a season of mid-table mediocrity with any realistic fears of relegation being extinguished as early as possible, even if there was no real danger of us threatening the play-offs at the other end of the table. Sounds boring on the surface perhaps, bu

Match Preview - Arbroath vs Morton (29th April)

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. Dougie Imrie’s nineteenth game in charge will mark the end of a season in which the former Morton player’s impact cannot be understated. Imrie has hauled a Ton side seemingly doomed to relegation under the tutelage of Gus MacPherson to Championship survival with room to spare. The man who scored the Greenock side’s most famous goal of this m

Match Preview - Morton vs Inverness (23rd April)

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. With the Highlanders guaranteed a place in the promotion play-offs, Morton still require a solitary point, or for either Ayr United or Dunfermline to drop against Partick and Queen of the South respectively to secure our own pl

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
