MORTON striker Bob McHugh says he will do what’s right for his family when he decides where his future lies after being offered a contract on reduced terms by the club.

The Ton forward is one of four players offered new deals for next season, it was announced yesterday.

The 27-year-old was Morton’s top goalscorer last term, despite missing the last month of the season after he suffered a hairline fracture in his leg.

The former Motherwell and Falkirk player previously told the Tele he was keen to stay on at Cappielow after getting regular first team action in his two seasons at the Greenock club.

Ton have a reduced budget for next season, with chairman Crawford Rae previously saying the club was going to run on a break-even basis, with cost-cutting taking effect next season.

The striker says his new contract is not as good as his last one, and because of the major financial hit he would take by staying on he needs to make the right decision for his family’s future despite enjoying his time at the Ton.

He told the Tele: “They have made me an offer but due to major financial cuts I need to consider the impact it will have on my family.

“For myself I want to get it [my future sorted] done sooner rather than later.

“I imagine over the next few weeks or two we’ll get something sorted.

“I’ve loved my time at Morton, it’s been great. It’s been an up and down season, but in the end we finished on a high at fifth place.”

McHugh, alongside fellow forward Robert Thomson, defender Lewis Strapp and midfielder Michael Tidser were offered new terms by the club.

Gregor Buchanan, Reghan Tumilty, Chris Millar and Jim McAlister all triggered contract extensions by reaching a certain number of appearances last season and are also entitled to new deals.

McHugh was one of the squad members who met new manager David Hopkin on

Monday, as the ex-Livingston manager talked through his plans for the Cappielow club.

Shortly before joining the Ton back in 2017, the striker says Hopkin tried to sign him for his Lions side after they achieved promotion to the Championship.

The frontman admits he’s been impressed by how the new Ton boss set up his previous Livingston side.

He added: “He was just introducing himself, and showing what his plans were like going forward for the team.

“It was nice to speak to him, I know he’s a good man and a good manager as well.

“I’ve spoken to him before when he was at Livingston, he tried to sign me before and I knew him from that and playing against his teams over the last few years.

“He’s always had well organised teams, and the Livingston season speaks for itself.

“When they had just won League One two years ago he was keen to get me then.

“I’ve dealt with him before and he was very honest as a gaffer and from everything I’ve heard about him from people who have played under him, his training and everything seems spot on."
