CRAIG McGuffie has urged his team-mates to get over the heartbreak of losing their relegation battle as they look to save Morton's season in the play-offs.

Friday night's stalemate at Arbroath and Ayr United's point at Inverness Caley Thistle saw Ton end the Championship campaign in ninth spot.

The Ton winger says the players were hurting following the goalless draw at Gayfield - but he called for a quick recovery ahead of Saturday's play-off semi-final first leg.

He told the Tele: “It’s gutting because I thought the game was there for the taking, but obviously the sending off hasn’t done us any favours.

“It’s the story of the season really. In the first half I thought we were great but we just couldn’t get that goal that we needed.

“We’re all really disappointed but we just need to let it go and go again on Monday and start preparing for the play-offs.

“We need to look at that and be as positive as possible.

“We’ve just got to look at it game by game, we’ve got four games to save our season now.

"Obviously it’s disappointing for just now - it’ll be sore for a couple of days - but it’s important we get it out of our systems quickly and put things right."
