Was It Really Ten Years Ago?

It's unbelievable to think that it is almost ten years ago that Morton were the subject of Scottish Parliamentary debate as a result of concerns at the way Hugh Scott (pictured) was running the club.

During the proceedings Inverclyde MSP Duncan McNeil said of Scott: “He brings embarrassment and disgrace to this community”.

I was reminded of the debate after reading the When Saturday Comes website and coming across an article by Frank Plowright.

In the piece, Plowright writes about Scott's time as Morton chairman - and any fan who wasn't around back then should take the time to read the article.

And even if you were around at the time, there might be some revelations that you weren't aware of. I had no idea that Scott was alleged to have tried to sell Morton to Huntly so they could take over our league membership:

Then, following Huntly’s failed application to join the Scottish League, Scott apparently tried to sell Morton to them lock, stock and league membership.
