Morton Career - starts, sub appearances, goals:

Old Div 1: 0 Lge Cup: 0 Scot C: 0
Old Div 1: 7, 1, 1 Lge Cup: 2,0,0 Scot C: 0 Texaco Cup: 2,0,0

League: 7, 1, 1 Lge Cup: ? Scot C: ? Texaco Cup: 2,0,0

Overall: 11 Starts, 1 Sub Appearance, 1 Goal

These stats are taken from Joe's autobiography and comparing various other sources. He says that he signed for Leeds after only 12 appearances with Morton. He specifically mentions: making his Morton debut by starting against West Bromwich Albion in the Texaco Cup, coming on as a substitute at Parkhead against Celtic and starting against Rangers. However I'm not 100% sure about how many of those 12 appearances were as starts or as a substitute so those above may be incorrect.
