Grady Given Until The End Of The Season

Morton caretaker manager James Grady has been handed the job until the end of the season.

Grady (pictured, left: in the dugout against Dundee) had been joint caretaker with Allan McManus for the last five games but it looks like Grady will now take full control with McManus his assistant. In Saturday's Scottish Sun Robert Grieve wrote:

The 38-year-old will be named as the Cappielow club's new boss today ahead of their clash with Inverness Caley Thistle. Ton defender Allan McManus will work with Grady as his No2 after getting the nod from chairman Douglas Rae last night.
The Greenock Telegraph didn't have the story in their paper on Saturday but did break the news online. Grady told the Tele's Roger Graham of his hopes for the future:

It's up to Allan and me now to deliver and show that the club have made the right decision. I am a very ambitious person and want to be successful. I want to there when we are playing in front of a sell-out crowd going into the Premier League. This decision brings stability. We will help the players and it is our aim to bring the fans back with attractive football. We know we can bring success once we start getting the boys back fit.

The new player/manager didn't get off to the best of starts as his Morton side - including Grady, as he came on as a late substitute - went down 4-1 away to Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
