OHN Sutton hasn’t ruled out playing on beyond this season and says ‘nothing is set in stone’ for his future.

The striker came out of retirement last month to sign on with Morton on a one-year playing deal.

The forward had several offers to continue his playing career at the end of season 2017-18 when he was released by the Buddies after they won the Championship.

He opted to become Morton’s head of development squad instead and hung up his playing boots.

But the 35-year-old has now been persuaded to come out of retirement by Ton manager David Hopkin and chief executive Dave MacKinnon.

The striker has been working with the reserve squad for the last two weeks in Portugal for their pre-season training.

Sutton was back with the first team this week as they gear up for the Betfred Cup fixtures.

He insists he wants to keep his options open at the moment, and will not make any hasty decisions on his career.

When asked if he has considered playing on for more than a season, he told the Tele: “Things in football change by the day and by the week.

“I’m not setting anything in stone. I want to give it my best, which is what I’ve done throughout my career.

“I’ve got a responsibility to the development squad to help them out as much as I can and hopefully I can teach them a bit on the coaching and when I’m called upon on the pitch.”
