New Director On Board

Following on from the recent news that Arthur Montford and Iain D. Brown had retired from the board of directors Morton have welcomed a new director onto the board in the shape of businessman Alistair Donald.

In Saturday's match day programme Douglas Rae devoted a couple of paragraphs to the announcement and Donald himself is given half a page to talk about his decision to join the board (both of which you can read by clicking on the images above [Rae] and below [Donald] to enlarge them).

The news was met by curiosity amongst the Morton support leading to an interesting thread on the http://www.greenockmorton.org/ messageboard. A couple of the posts on the thread included fascinating links: theyorkshirepudding linking to a BBC website article and Greacen2000 who linked to a ScotlandonSunday article. According to these articles Donald is a lifelong Rangers fan who attempted to give Alex McLeish £10 million of his estimated fortune of £70 million to spend on players.
