Saints Join Race For Imrie

Two Greenock Telegraph articles over the last two two days have basically confirmed that Morton are in the hunt for Clyde striker Dougie Imrie (pictured - chesting the ball).

In today's Tele' Roger Graham has written a good opinion piece stating that in his opinion Morton must sign two quality strikers and a strong, experienced midfielder to challenge this season. He also says : "There is little doubt that Clyde striker Dougie Imrie has been identified by Jim McInally as a signing target. That may be unconfirmed by the Cappielow boss, but it has not been denied either, and other sources indicate strongly that Imrie is the man the manager wants." This would seem to confirm that the Sunday Mail's story that we are interested in Imrie was true.

However, on Wednesday Chris Fitzgerald wrote that the Telegraph believes that St. Johnstone have joined Morton in the race for Imrie's signature. Owen Coyle is quoted and does not mention Imrie by name but states they are looking at 'several' players.

I like Imrie as a player. He's pacy, direct and his a decent strike on him. I'm not sure he is the goal grabber we need at Cappielow but that's not to say I wouldn't like us to sign him. If Jim McInally has him down as the answer to his striking problems I'd imagine he'll have to use some of the money set aside for Paul McGowan to bid more than St. Johnstone to get his man.
