MORTON’S Kerr Waddell says he’s leaving any talk regarding his future until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan at the Ton from Premiership side Dundee, who are in the relegation play-off spot and just one point off the bottom of the table.

With their fate uncertain, Waddell is unsure where his future will lie next term.

The centre-back says he’s focused on giving his all at Morton until the end of the season, and wouldn’t be against staying on at Cappielow if the opportunity came about.

He told the Tele: “I’ve told my agent I wanted to get to the end of the season and we’ll go from there. “I just want to try and win as many games as possible with Morton and try and get into the playoffs and just see what my options are.

“I’ve really enjoyed it here. It just depends on where we end up finishing and we’ll go from there.

“I can’t affect anything at Dundee, so I’ll just have to wait and see what happens with them.”

This is Waddell’s second loan spell out from Dundee, after a brief loan move to Clyde back in 2017.

The defender has featured 27 times so far for Jonatan Johansson’s side this campaign, the most games he has had in his professional football career in one season.

And the 20-year-old says first team action has been a huge help to his progress this season as a player.

He added: “I’ve really enjoyed it. I wasn’t playing at the start so I found it quite tough.

“I started playing every week then and, although I don’t think we were doing as well as we should or could be doing, I’ve still really enjoyed it, even on the personal side of it.

“When I’m playing every week it’s easier to get confidence up. I feel I’m going into every game and getting stronger and stronger.

“When I’m playing every week I feel like the gaffers trust me, so I need to keep playing well and keep the levels up.

“Learning from my mistakes has been the toughest thing for me this year, obviously everyone is going to make them.

“I am still quite young, if I make some now I’m learning from them and hopefully I can improve on them.

“I feel like I’ve improved my positioning a lot as well, we work on it every week and it helps being around experienced players.”

Morton sit in sixth place currently with eight games left to go in the season.

Due to a number of games being called off and Inverness Caley Thistle still being in the Scottish Cup, Morton now have a fixture pile-up heading into next month.

They have four games in the space of two weeks, getting a week’s break after that before playing games in quick succession again.

Several of those encounters are against teams close to the Ton in the table. If Morton did manage to come out with several victories from those matches, Waddell believes his side could be in with an outside chance of making the promotion play-offs.

He added: “The boys are saying in the last quarter when we’ve got four games in two weeks, Saturday, Tuesday each week.

“We need to play the teams above us, and if we do win four out of those six games we’re right back in amongst the teams above us.

“Dunfermline are the perfect example of that. They were struggling a few weeks before the new manager came in, and people were talking about them going down but they’re now up in the play-off places.”
