Johansson: Morton Was The Easy Option

James Grady's recent signing target Jonatan Johansson has signed a 1 year deal with Finnish club TPS - and the Finnish international has explained the reason why he chose not to sign for Morton in a video link press conference.

"Staying at Greenock Morton would have been the easiest option, the place is just a 10-minute drive away from where I live," he said at the press conference. "But I found the quality and professionalism of the Finnish league better."

Ironically, it was Morton legend and current TPS manager Marko Rajamäki who nipped in to beat his old club to secure Johansson's signature. Marko also spoke at the press conference (pictured). “We signed a national team regular, what more can you say,” he said. “Johansson’s experience gives a lift to our younger players as well. But we must remember that not everything is about Jonatan. This is a team, even if he is an important piece in the puzzle.”
