McKinlay Signing Confirmed

Morton have signed former Chelsea, Ross County and Partick Thistle midfielder Kevin McKinlay until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old - who can play at both left-midfield and left-back - was most recently with Dundalk in the League Of Ireland Premier Division. He has been without a club since leaving the Lilywhites in November last year.

McKinlay was on trial with us in December and played in a closed doors game versus Rangers. Morton boss James Grady has explained that the signing took a while because they were awaiting international clearance after his spell Ireland.

"I'm pleased to have brought Kevin here - he had an excellent schooling with Chelsea, and then came up to Scotland and played games at 1st Division level with Ross County and Partick Thistle before playing with Dundalk in Ireland," Grady told the club's official website.

"I feel he will give us good balance on the left side, as he can play at the back, midfield and also give us options up front. He is an agressive tackler, and good in the air - he is a very versatile player. He has been training with us for the last couple of weeks, and we were awaiting clearance from Ireland to allow us to sign him."
