RAY McKinnon has signed a one-year deal to succeed Jim Duffy as Greenock Morton manager.

The former Dundee United boss was unveiled at Cappielow on Wednesday morning. 

He replaces Duffy in the post, who departed the club at the end of the season after four years in charge.

Chairman Crawford Rae said: “I cannot tell you how delighted we are that Ray has agreed to join us, he was an absolute standout through the interview stages.

"Ray has had a number of offers and we are delighted that he has belief in us as it is very clear that he shares the same burning desire of returning Greenock Morton to the Premier League, the same passion that runs through everyone at the Club.” 

McKinnon led United to the play-off final during his first season in charge in 2016/17, but was sacked last October after a poor start to their Championship title challenge.

The 47-year-old former Raith Rovers manager will now look to improve on 'Ton's seventh-place finish.
