Walker Returns To Morton

According to the BBC website, Morton utility man Alex Walker has had to cut short his loan spell with Brechin City after he suffered a recurrence of a hernia problem in a recent fixture against Alloa Athletic.

Alex missed a large chunk of this season due to the aforementioned hernia problem and this latest set back must come as a real blow to the 25-year-old's chances of earning a new contract with Morton in the summer.

"It's better for him and for us that he gets match fit," James Grady told the Greenock Telegraph last month. "His fitness levels aren't where they should be at the moment for us, but he will definitely get games for Brechin.

"Then he has to prove that he can go on a run of games free from injuries."

Unfortunately for Alex, he has failed prove he could go on a run of games free from injury, so it looks increasingly likely that he will join the list of players who will be leaving Cappielow in the summer.
