MORTON boss Dougie Imrie has pulled off yet another stunning transfer coup with the signing of 23-year-old playmaker Nathan Shaw following his exit from crisis club Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The highly coveted wide man lit up the Highlands after joining the Caley Jags in June of 2022, where he helped Ton gaffer Dougie Imrie's former side reach the Scottish Cup Final 12-months ago.

But his future now lies at Cappielow after penning a one-year contract.

Shaw becomes Imrie's sixth summer signing as he looks to go about overhauling his squad following the departures of key stars such as Robbie Muirhead, George Oakley, Robbie Crawford and Jai Quitongo.

Shaw joins fellow front men Lamar Reynolds and Jordan Davies, midfielders Owen Moffat and Aaron Lyall and former Airdrie man Cammy Ballantyne on putting pen to paper on terms that'll see him pull on the blue and white hoops of Morton for the next 12 months.

The former Blackpool trainee has featured 79 times for Caley in the last two seasons after joining from National League side AFC Fylde, registering 14 goals in all competitions when playing off both the right and left hand side or in behind the striker, as well as chipping in with ten assists in that period under both Billy Dodds and then Duncan Ferguson.

He quickly became a fan favourite at the Caledonian Stadium with his direct style of play and his eye for goal and he'll tie in with the new direction that Cappielow supremo Imrie wants to head in, with more technical players now coming through the door at Sinclair Street.

Given the current state of affairs at the Caledonian Stadium, it is unknown whether Shaw had been offered fresh terms ahead of Duncan Ferguson's assault on League One - but that didn't stop Imrie swooping ahead of other interested parties to get his man as he continues to assemble his new look squad ahead of the League Cup group stages kicking off in a little over two weeks time.

Elsewhere, defender Darragh O'Connor has left the club, it can be revealed, in a move that's brought an end to a two-year association with Morton.

The Irish stopper made 68 appearances across two injury-disrupted seasons, scoring three times including the time he netted a brace in a 5-0 win against Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park.

He follows in the footsteps of fellow defender Lewis Strapp - who's set to join Finnish top flight side SJK, as previously revealed by the Tele, in the coming days.
