MORTON have announced striker Robbie Muirhead as their latest summer signing.

The 23-year-old, who was with Championship rivals Dunfermline last season, has agreed a one year contract with the Cappielow club.

Muirhead started his career with Kilmarnock before moving on to Dundee United.

He then had a season with Hearts before a switch down south to MK Dons prior to his move to East End Park.

The frontman has been capped by Scotland at every level from under-15-19 and was called up to the under-21 squad in 2018.

He joins fellow forwards Bob Mchugh and Cameron Salkeld in David Hopkin's new-look squad for the forthoming season.

Boss Hopkin said: "Robbie has only turned 23 and we are getting someone I think we’re very lucky to have.

“When I was in charge of the 20s here at Morton the first time, I saw him coming through at Kilmarnock.

"He went on to play about 50 games, and for a kid at that age to be playing is an indication of his ability.

“He made some really good moves to different clubs but has been used in different positions that are a wee bit alien to him, because he can play there.

“I spoke to his agent, Grant Smith, who I know well, and Grant was keen to get him back playing football, and back where I think he should be: as a striker, as a number nine.

“A lot of people will have seen him playing in a wide left role, centre mid, or other positions. But from when I first saw him as a kid, at 17 years old, he has been most effective up top – and that’s where he’ll be playing for us.

“We have good competition there. We’ve got Robbie, Bob McHugh signed up, young Kalvin Orsi has come in, and Cameron Salkeld can play there too.

“Robbie is a fantastic footballer.

"I think a lot of people forget because he’s 6ft 3in; they think he’s just going to be this targetman.

"But he’s a cultured footballer, he’s quick, he’s skilful, and it’s my job now to get the best out of him.”
