Morton survived their relegation play-off last season with Dumbarton, but, overall, it was a difficult season. Financial problems surfaced and manager David Hopkin abruptly left. Experienced head Gus MacPherson took charge and oversaw their unconvincing survival. He faces a difficult task this season. Hopkin (now Ayr’s manager) has lured away Morton’s defensive duo, McGinty and Fjortoft, powerful midfielder Salkeld and reliable goalkeeper McAdams. Creative talents Nesbitt and McGuffie are now both at Falkirk. Forward Kalvin Orsi has stepped down to Dumbarton. Although Morton had a poor season, these were all regular starters at some point and will be hard to replace. Morton have made few signings. Alan Lithgow is a reliable centre-back from Livingston and Jack Hamilton a promising goalkeeper from Dundee. Gozie Ugwu gained some Championship experience with Raith Rovers last season and Mark Russell is back after a spell in Irish football. Otherwise, Morton must be looking at loan signings to cover the gaps from their significant departures. With the players they have lost and the few they have signed, it is difficult to see how Morton can improve upon the struggle they had last season. Gus MacPherson will have them organised and fighting, but without the money to acquire quality players another relegation battle looms.

Target


Morton will be content with avoiding the bottom 2 places. They have very little chance of being involved at the top of the table.

Season Review
2020/2021

№9: Morton

Morton went into the season with trouble in the air and that was how the season progressed. They finished 9th on goal difference but pulled themselves together and easily defeated Airdrie in the play-offs to survive. Morton were inconsistent, but home form was good in the early part of the season. However, between January and March form collapsed. Morton only won 2 of their 19 closing fixtures of the season (W2 D10 L7). Matters worsened with the abrupt departure of manager David Hopkin at the end of January. Anton McElhone took over without success until Gus MacPherson was appointed in March. Results hardly improved, but they survived and that is all that mattered to them. Morton were by a margin the lowest scorers in the league with only 22 goals. Yet, they had one of the better defences with only 33 conceded. They played the entire season without a replacement goalkeeper on their bench. Morton hoped to reach the promotion play-offs, but finances caught up with them and they only just averted disaster. They still lack stability on the pitch and behind the scenes. Next season looks like another difficult one. Unless fresh investment is found, Morton will have to survive with a small squad and possibly switch to part-time football.
