THOMAS O’Ware insists he has no regrets about celebrating his winner in front of the Morton fans after leading Partick Thistle to a crucial victory against his former club.

The ex-Ton centre-half believes that his opening goal of the season couldn’t have come at a better time in his first game at Cappielow since his departure just over 18 months ago.

He savoured the moment and could be seen thumping the Partick badge as he ran over to the Cowshed to celebrate.

He told the Tele: “It’s been a while since I’ve scored a goal and the boys in the dressing room had been slagging me about it.

“Because I haven’t actually got near anything and for me to get my first goal against Morton, you couldn’t write it.

“I’m delighted to get on the scoresheet finally.

“I thought that when Danny Rogers had saved my header from the free-kick I was thinking that it wasn’t going to happen and then two seconds later the ball came in and I’ve just made a run across, I didn’t even think I’d gotten enough on it.

“I think I’ve got every right to enjoy it, for whatever reason.

“Whenever I’ve played against Morton, I’ve been slaughtered so I’ve got no reason not to.

“It doesn’t bother me if I get a bit of stick for leaving Morton.

“I’m delighted to score after a horrific year off the pitch personally.”
