MORTON's chief executive Gillian Donaldson has left the club.

A statement from Cappielow confirmed her departure after 15 years of service.

It said: "It is with regret that our chief executive, Gillian Donaldson, has tendered her resignation with immediate effect.

"Gillian, who has been a family friend of the Raes since her schooldays, advised the chairman at the start of the week that it was her intention to leave and take her career on a different direction.

"Everyone at Greenock Morton wishes Gillian all the very best in her new career path and thank her for her devoted service, helping to take the club out of administration 15 years ago.

"Gillian who was one of the youngest bank managers for Royal Bank of Scotland before joining the Club in 2001 has been a fantastic servant to GMFC and will be sorely missed by all her friends and colleagues at the club, the SFA and the SPFL."
