MORTON marksman Bob McHugh hopes that he can continue to deliver goals for boss David Hopkin as he eyes staying on another season at Cappielow.

The striker was leading the way in the goalscoring charts with 11 strikes to his name before the coronavirus shutdown.

He admits there is now an air of uncertainty around his future but believes that the manager has a good core of players signed up for next season - and he wants to be part of that squad and take his Ton career into what would be a fourth season.

Before being furloughed with the rest of his colleagues, McHugh told the Tele: “I’m in the same boat as a lot of the other boys just now with my contract being up in the summer.

"Obviously it’s a worry when you have a young family to provide for.

"It’s not something that you want to think about, but it’s in the back of your mind.

“For a lot of us contracts are up at the beginning of June.

"It is all really uncertain because we don’t know what stage the virus is going to be at then, and how it’s going to affect football and stuff like that.

“I’m not trying to think about it too much but it’s an issue that’s going to need to be spoken about in the next few weeks.

"Hopefully we can get something sorted."

McHugh says the sudden end to the campaign meant he did not get the chance to have a proper sitdown with his boss to get his thoughts on the future.

The former Motherwell and Falkirk forward said: “I still haven’t had any types of conversations like that with the gaffer, but he’s seemed happy with me over the course of the season.

“He’s seemed happy with how I’ve performed over the season so far.

"That is as much as I know for next year, so I’m just waiting to see what happens really.

“There is a good group of boys signed up for next season, so it’s just a case of us adding to that and waiting this thing out and then hopefully we can have a right good go at things next year.”
