FORMER Morton cult hero Kudus Oyenuga says he loved his time at the club and built an affinity with Cappielow supporters — so much so that he laughed when he discovered that a supporter had his name tattooed on their body.

Oyenuga was one of four first-team players not offered a new contract at the end of last season — in a list which also included Conor Pepper, Jamie McDonagh and Jon Scullion.

The striker insists he has built up such a rapport with the Morton supporters that, not only was he devastated to leave Greenock in the summer, but he was delighted with some of the well wishes he received from fans after news broke that he would be leaving Sinclair Street.

He told the Tele: “Leaving Morton was sad. 

“I was sad to leave because I had so many good memories at the club. 

“I felt I did well but it just wasn’t meant to be. 

“I was gutted to leave though because I knew I had a good rapport with the fans.

“Every message since I’ve left has all been positive. Every fan has been pleasant to me since I’ve left.

“I’ve had everything from messages on Instagram to fans having tattoos of my name on their body parts. 

“It’s just really lovely, if not strange, gestures from the supporters and I’m really grateful and thankful to the fans.

“Morton is such a good family club that is so well run and the supporters were amazing the whole season. 

“They contributed really well to what we wanted to do. 

“I can’t thank them enough.”

Oyenuga has since signed for Vanarama National League South outfit Chelmsford City and he’s excited to get started down south. 

The 23-year-old has no ill-will against Ton boss Jim Duffy for releasing him at the end of his contract — and instead praised the manager’s honesty and reasoning for letting him go.

He said: “I’ve signed for Chelmsford City and I’m delighted to sign for a club that plays their football not too far from where my family are based. 

“So it’s ideal for me to go, get some games and play more regularly.

“It was a very stop-start season at Morton when I was in the team, not in the team, in the team and not in the team again, so it was quite frustrating. 

“That’s why I moved to a team where I’d play more often, that was important to me.

“Jim Duffy just said that I was at an age now where I’d have to and want to be playing more regularly, which is very true. 

“He said he could’ve kept me there because I’m versatile and can play on the left or up-top, but he just said I needed to get games and play more often after a stop-start season.”
