Gus MacPherson says he has ‘no idea’ whether he will be Greenock Morton manager next season, despite guiding the club to Scottish Championship safety.

The Cappielow club welcomed 600 fans back to the stadium for the first time in 14 months on Friday as they beat Airdrieonians 3-0 in the second leg of the Championship play-off. Morton won the first leg in North Lanarkshire 1-0 and Robbie Muirhead’s double followed by a Gary Oliver header sealed safety comfortably.

MacPherson was brought to the club in March to ensure survival, and now he’s managed that, talks will commence on his future: “I have no idea what happens but we will have a chat at the start of the week and see what happens. It’s not up to me. I have enjoyed being back involved and it was great to see the supporters back.

“They made a big difference. The players deserve so much credit as they have really applied themselves since I came in.  It is probably a miracle what they have produced, given all that has gone on this season. We got off to the perfect start with the perfect early goal from Robbie.

 

“I have watched Robbie since he came through at Kilmarnock and we all know what he is capable of. He has got that real quality and he really showed that. I thought he was absolutely outstanding. We had a positive mindset throughout and the goals came at good times.”
