Ton And Saints In Jackson Battle

Morton are battling it out with St Mirren to secure the services of St Johnstone's Andy Jackson, according to the Scottish Sun's Roger Hannah.

The small snippet in today's Sun is mostly about how St Mirren boss Danny Lennon is keen to secure Jackson's signature to solve his goalscoring problems, but ends by saying: "Morton are also interested."

Although he actually made a substitute appearance against Morton in the League Cup earlier in the season, Jackson finds himself out of favour with Derek McInnes and will probably welcome regular first-team football.

The 23-year-old frontman was very highly rated in his early days at McDiarmid Park, earning a cap for the Republic of Ireland under-21s, but his progress has been hampered by injury problems.

He's a player I've always rated, and if he still has the pace and clinical finishing ability that he demonstrated in the past, then I believe he could be exactly the type of striker Morton are looking for.
