JACK Iredale hopes playing in multiple positions in recent weeks has shown manager Jonatan Johansson he can fill whatever role required for Morton.

The defender played as left-wing back earlier in the season, getting a run in that position as part of a back five at the back.

But after Johansson made several new signings in the January transfer window, he reverted to a backline of four, meaning Iredale slotted in at left-back.

The 22-year-old says all players have to cope with changes that come during the season, and it’s something he has to get on with.

He told the Tele: “At the top level you have to be able to adapt to a variety of positions because there are going to be injuries.

“The formation has changed with the new personnel coming in and the gaffer trying to play the new signings.

“We’ve gone with four at the back and I have to focus a bit more on the defensive side of things, rather than having that little extra bit of freedom going forward.

“I have to adapt to being more of a conventional left-back rather than a wing back.

“I was really enjoying playing wing back with the freedom and the ability to go forward. With left-back at the tail end of last season I was really enjoying getting a run in the team. 

“I know I have both in my locker at least.

“The good thing that people can see is that I’m able to play in a number of positions.”
