Greacen Leaves Club

Long-serving Morton defender Stewart Greacen has today parted company with the club by mutual consent.

The centre-back, who has been installed as club captain on two seperate occasions, has only made three starts under Allan Moore this season and appears to have moved on in search of first-team football.

Moore made it clear at the start of the season that he wasn't happy with his defence after a 2-2 draw in a bounce game against Albion Rovers and moved to sign Marc Smyth and later Stuart McCaffrey to strengthen his rearguard.

28-year-old Greacen joined Ton on a season's loan in season 2001-02 and then made the move permanent in the summer of 2003. In his two spells with the club, Greacen made 276 starts, three substitute appearances and scored a respectable 19 goals (which included seven in the 2003/04 season alone).

Stewart is a great professional who always gave everything he had in a Morton shirt. I'd like to take the opportunity to wish him all the best in the future.

'Big Stu' can be as good as he can be bad. He is a competent central defender if he's played alongside a 'sweeper' who can read the game, and if half of the squad had had half of his determination and courage during his stay perhaps Auld Shoogly wouldn't be girning so much about attendances.

Good luck Stewart.
