He's Gone!

According to a post by Douglas Rae on http://www.gmfc.net/ Jim McInally is no longer manager of Morton after resigning earlier today. Martin Clark will follow him out of the club shortly.

The former Dundee United, Nottingham Forest, Celtic and Scotland player told Douglas Rae that he was resigning because
he thought that the best way forward for the Club was for him to move on and indicated that the only way that the players were going to find favour once again with the supporters would be if a new Manager was brought in

Rae goes on to express his disappointment stating that he accepted his management duos resignation with regret. He also makes an absolutely absurd comment blaming the Morton fans for our poor home record and finishes by wishing both men luck in the future.

McInally was appointed Morton manager in October 2004. In his 3 years and 4 months at Morton he won the 2nd division championship in 2006/07. He extended his contract in May 2007 by signing a 1 year rolling extension.

Season By Season Record:

2004/05 - 3rd in 2nd Division (1 point off promotion)
2005/06 - 2nd in 2nd Division (lost 1-0 in two legged play-off semi-final against Peterhead)
2006/07 - 1st in 2nd Division (Champions - 8 points ahead of Stirling Albion)
2007/08 - 9th in 1st Division (leaves Morton in second bottom in the play-off position with 12 matches to play)


2nd Division manager of the month - March 2005, November 2005, August 2006, September 2006, December 2006
