Relegation Rivals Praise Opposition Fans

Today Morton go head to head with Ayr United in a winner takes all relegation decider, and two of the men involved are coming up against their former teams and both took time to praise the fans of their old side.

In an interview with the Scottish Sun's Robert Grieve, James Grady, who played when the Honest Men lost 4-0 to Rangers in the 2002 League Cup Final, said: "I had some great times at Somerset Park. I was there for three years and absolutely loved it. I was part of the side which reached the League Cup final in 2002.

"It's a really great club with fantastic fans. But I've got to be honest, all that goes right out the window when we play this weekend. It can't be any other way.

"I want Morton to go out and win the game and if that sees one of my old clubs relegated then so be it."

And it was in another Sun article that ex-Morton player Dean Keenan had some special praise for the Ton support. "I know how hard it's going to be at Cappielow," he told Paul Hughes. "It's a hard place and the fans are fantastic, so we know we are right up against it."

However, Dean (pictured, on Alex Walker's back celebrating the Second Division title in 2007) didn't stop there, he also mentioned the Cowshed faithful later in the article. "Morton have great fans and they will back them, but we need to try and shut them up.

"We need an early goal and we need to hope their fans and players get frustrated."
