MORTON have today signed Celtic youngster Paul McMullan on loan.

The 19-year-old spent the first half of the season on loan at St Mirren - playing against Ton in three Renfrewshire derbies - before returning to Parkhead.

He was also farmed out last season, to Stenhousemuir, and scored against the Ton in a match last April at Cappielow for the Warriors.

A statement from Morton said: "We're delighted to announce the signing of Paul McMullan from Celtic on a short term loan deal."

McMullan is eligible for selection for tonight's match against Hibernian and is expected to go straight into Jim Duffy's squad for the game.
