MORTON chairman Crawford Rae admits his number one choice for future investment is the new supporter-led Morton Club Together (MCT) initiative.

The Ton chief revealed in yesterday’s Tele he was in discussions with ‘two or three’ different parties about investment in the club, with one of those being based abroad.

The proposed fan ownership scheme launched by Graham McLennan, right, from Port Glasgow, aims to provide £400,000 of capital investment over the next two years.

Over 100 pledges worth £40,000 were made during the first weekend of the project as support continues to grow for MCT.

If the scheme does hit its intended targets, then Rae has agreed the supporters would be allowed a director on the board at Cappielow, as well as parting with 15 per cent of his company Golden Casket’s shareholding in the club and hand it over to the fans’ group.

He told the Tele: “I would like it to be the supporters, we are going to be pushing that more and more. We’re 100 per cent behind MCT. 

“Other clubs have had great success, it’s possible and it makes so much sense – if people have a vested interest in something they will support it a lot more if you have a say.

“We will give a seat on the board of directors to MCT if they come up with the targets that Graham McLennan has set.”
