GREG Kiltie today described his move to Morton as a ‘no-brainer’ and says he can’t wait to get his career back on track in Greenock.

The Kilmarnock winger signed on loan with the Ton until the end of the season, ending weeks of speculation around his future.

The 22-year-old was close to sealing a move earlier in the transfer window to Cappielow, but when Killie lost forward Greg Stewart unexpectedly to Aberdeen, it meant Kiltie’s move was put on hold.

However after the Ayrshire side brought in cover for the frontman this week, Kiltie was allowed to leave on loan.

The winger was relieved to have his immediate future sorted.

He told the Tele: “I was training with Kilmarnock yesterday morning when I finally got the news.

“I’ve been trying to get it to happen and I’ve just wanted to try and get myself out and play.

“It was a no-brainer for me coming to get games under my belt and helping the team as much as possible.

“I thought it was going to happen two weeks ago, and that sort of stuff happens unfortunately.

“I was in limbo with Greg moving. That postponed whatever I was going to do, but it was never off. 

“It was just a waiting game to see when it would happen.

“It’s frustrating when you know something should be done but it’s not always as simple as you want it to be. 

“I knew it was going to get over the line, I was just waiting for it to be done.

“I’m really excited to be here and to start playing again.”

Kiltie was a regular in Kilmarnock’s side before Steve Clarke’s arrival, but several serious injuries to his knee and ankle have disrupted his progress.

That, tied with Killie’s success under the former Chelsea coach, has seen the 22-year-old being left out of the starting line-up over the past year.

But the wideman said he could have little complaints considering how well his parent club are doing.

He added: “In terms of me getting back fully fit — and that’s me back for a year now without any injuries — it’s now time for me to start playing competitive games.

“The second injury came just after the gaffer was announced and it’s hard when you’re not fully fit and a new manager comes in.

“It was hard to then break into the team when the boys were doing so well, and what can you say when the team is flying high?

“It’s been difficult not playing but I’ve been happy to be part of the great group we have and the success we’ve been having.”
