Paul Hegarty Wants The Job

Former Dundee United defender Paul Hegarty today said that he would like to be considered for the Morton job.

I don't have a direct link to a newspaper article but I did read of his interest in today's Daily Record while the BBC sport website's rumours sections says:

Former Aberdeen, Dundee United and Livingston manager Paul Hegarty wants to be Morton's new boss. (Various)

Hegarty's most recent managerial position was a short period in charge of Livingston under controversial owner Angelo Massone. He was given an 18 month contract in December 2008 but was mysteriously suspended and subsequently dismissed after only four and a half months in the job. At the time Massone refused to explain the reasons for Hegarty's dismissal, simply stating that it was "a private matter at the club".

In his time at Livingston his record was: played 18, won 6, drew 5 and lost 7 (one of which was against Morton).

Hegarty (pictured, above left: managing Livingston at Cappielow last season; he is on the far left of the picture) also had short and unsuccessful spells as caretaker manager of both Aberdeen and Dundee United as well as two years in charge at Forfar Athletic in the early '90s.
