MICHAEL Doyle admits he and his team-mates were devastated after they fell to Dundee United in the Premiership play-offs.

But the optimistic 25-year-old wants to look at the positives from his first season at Cappielow and he insists there were plenty to savour as a Morton player this season.

Doyle told the Tele: “There was a sense of disappointment in the dressing room last Friday night. But you’ve got to stay positive, the thing is we’ve had a fantastic season.

“Maybe we’ve kind of ran out of steam a wee bit towards the end but if you’d have said at the start of the season we’d have been in a semi-final, played Rangers, been in the top four — we would’ve taken it. But it’s still disappointing.

“You’ve got to look at things over the course of the whole season and we’ve had a fantastic one. A couple of wee mistakes killed us on Friday but it happens sometimes. 

“That’s football, we’re disappointed. I know the boys are proud to finish fourth but you want to go as far as you can, so we’re gutted.” 

On Friday’s performance, Doyle said: “I thought in the first half we had a good game plan but in the second half we made a couple of mistakes and they’ve capitalised on it, that’s the big difference. 

“They’ve then been able to bring on a couple of subs that can change the game.”
