McLean Gunning For Ton

Former Morton striker Kenny McLean is desperate to face the Cappielow side in this season's Scottish Cup.

McLean, who now plays for Ayrshire Junior side Beith, told the Scottish Sun's Paul Hughes that he wants a crack at the Ton in the next round of the Scottish Cup to gain some revenge after former Morton manager Jim McInally unceremoniously dumped him after he was diagnosed with cancer.

McLean said: "I'd quite like a crack at Morton in the next round. I used to play there and felt a bit aggrieved when I was released.

"I was only 20 and had been with them for about three years. Jim McInally was in charge there but I fell seriously ill and he just gave me the cold shoulder when I recovered.

"I was diagnosed with testicular cancer and missed four or five months.

"When I came back I was ready to go again but I just got binned.

"The way McInally did it was bad because he never even told me I wasn't getting a deal. After something like that I just want to enjoy my football. Life's too short."

The 25-year-old made 11 appareances (3 starts, 8 sub) for Morton in three seasons with the club and was actually given a shock start in the second leg of the 2005-06 promotion play-off against Peterhead.
