DOUGIE Imrie has today turned down a contract extension from Morton, the Tele can exclusively reveal.

The 30-year-old was one of only five players from last season’s squad to be offered new deals for the upcoming League One campaign.

However, the Tele has learned that Imrie, who served as club captain last term following Mark McLaughlin’s departure in December, has elected to move on to pastures new after some deliberation.

It is understood that the wideman had attracted interest from the likes of Livingston and Raith Rovers but looks to set to sign with an unnamed Scottish Premiership club.

Former Clyde, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Hamilton Accies, and St Mirren star Imrie was brought to Cappielow by then-boss Allan Moore last July.

In his one season in Greenock, he finished as the club’s top scorer, netting 11 goals in 39 starts, as well as making a clean sweep of the various supporters’ clubs' Player of the Year awards.
