Morton Warned By SFA

The Scottish Football Association Disciplinary Committee has warned Morton about the club's poor disciplinary record on the playing field in the first half of this season.

In today's Daily Record an article by Chris Roberts reveals that Hearts have been fined £10,000 after having 7 players sent off and 37 booked so far this season. Roberts then goes on to mention the 'bad boys' in the First Division. He says:

"Clyde are the First Division bad boys, having racked up five red cards, 61 yellows and a massive 220 points. They have been warned along with Ross County - 196 points - and Morton."

Morton's disciplinary record this season is 5 red cards and 55 bookings. According to the SFA's website we have incurred a total of 185 disciplinary points.

The red cards were for the following reasons:

Brian Wake v Clyde (02.08.08) - Second caution in the same match.
Allan McManus v Airdrie (30.08.08) - Violent conduct.
Allan McManus v Ross County (12.10.08) - Denying an opponent a goal or an obvious goalscoring opportunity
Peter Weatherson v Peterhead (29.11.08) - Violent conduct (pictured, above left)
Kevin Cuthbert v Airdrie (27.12.08) - Denying an opponent a goal or an obvious goalscoring opportunity

In July 2008 we were commended for our disciplinary record.
