LAST week I spoke about the challenge ahead for Morton Club Together (MCT) to unite a faltering, unhappy impatient support with the club and perhaps this weekend’s decision to part company with Gus MacPherson might just be a step in the right direction.

Some of our support had certainly lost patience with the manager and loudly proved that both at Dumfries on Wednesday and at Cappielow on Saturday.

I think most of the booing and abuse coming from the supporters were in general aimed at the manager, but I’m sure that it also had a negative effect on the players as the atmosphere lately has been hostile to say the least.

I believe in simple footballing terms the decision to terminate his contact was correct as his win percentage must be the lowest of any manager in recent history.

Unfortunately as a fully paid up member of MCT I worry that we have just committed financial suicide as his pay off and subsequent hiring of his replacement might be a step too far and eventually lead to part-time football at Cappielow.

The best Morton side in my time was part-time.

But I cannot think we will ever be lucky enough to see a Morton team ever come close to that brilliant side in my lifetime.
