MORTON chairman Douglas Rae has slammed boo boy supporters - and told them 'they are not welcome at Cappielow'.

The Ton owner has hit out in the wake of angry scenes at the end of the club's recent clash against Ayr United.

Ton lost the game at Somerset Park 2-1 and a small section of the travelling support reacted by turning on manager Jim Duffy, while the team was also booed off after losing a third game in a row.

Writing in his matchday programme column on Saturday, Mr Rae branded these fans 'so-called supporters' - and said he would prefer such people to stay away from matches.

Rae said: "It was very disappointing to hear a small band of so-called supporters giving the players a hard time through a torrent of foul language directed at them and the manager.

"The young men who were dishing out the vitriol were also calling for Jim Duffy to be sacked.

"What a ridiculous suggestion relative to a man who has worked wonders since joining the club over two years ago.

"I wish that type of supporter would either amend their ways or stay away from Cappielow.

"We can well do without the vitriol and booing element who claim to be supporters of the team and club.

"They are not welcome at Cappielow."

The jeers had turned to cheers at the weekend as Ton ended their losing run and won their first league game of the season.
