Irons Is The Right Man For The Job

Morton midfielder Ryan McGuffie has told Bert Mitchell at the Evening Times that Davie Irons is "the right man for the job and the best bet to keep the club up."

He also comments on Irons excellent man-management skills and first class training. He is quoted as saying: "The first thing I would say about Davie is that his man-management skills are brilliant.He has that habit of knowing how to get the best out of players and that will be massive at Morton over the closing stages of this campaign. Davie's enthusiasm is infectious. He took training and it was different class, upbeat with a great tempo. But, from my time working under Davie at Gretna, I knew that the training would be good as he is an excellent coach. So I think that the appointment of Davie and Derek Collins as his No.2 is a great piece of business for Morton."

I could be wrong but the impression I got from McGuffie's comments were that Jim McInally's man-management and training were not what they could be, or at least much inferior to Irons'.

In related news McGuffie was banned from driving for 12 months and fined £500 after he admitted drink-driving at Dumfries Sheriff Court on Wednesday. McGuffie was caught outside his home at more than double the legal limit.

The story appeared in the news section of today's Greenock Telegraph. Morton chief executive Gillian Donaldson is quoted as saying: "As this is a personal matter for the player, it would be inappropriate for us to comment until we have spoken to Ryan, however this will be discussed at our board meeting later this week."

Let's hope he can move on from this quickly as he could be a key player in our attempts to stay out of division two.
