MORTON today completed the loan signing of Aberdeen striker Declan McManus until 6 January.

Ton boss Jim Duffy told the Tele how he was working non-stop to tie up a deal ahead of tomorrow's League One curtain raiser against Ayr United.

The move was delayed due to the Dons’ Europa League second leg tie against Real Sociedad last night.

But the loan contract was tied up this afternoon, and 20-year-old McManus looks set to be thrown straight into the starting line-up at Somerset Park.
