Morton boss David Hopkin feels that goalkeeper Aidan McAdams is getting better by the week. The 21-year-old was excellent in the 2-0 loss to Hearts on Saturday.

Even though he played on the losing side, McAdams was very impressive. His string of saves in the first-half in particular prevented Morton from suffering a heavy defeat. He could do nothing about either goal Hearts scored, and that should not take any shine off of his performance.

Signed on a free transfer

“I thought Aidan had some fantastic saves” Hopkin said. The Morton boss then discussed two saves in particular that the young goalkeeper pulled off.

“Two fantastic saves”

“Two fantastic saves. I think the one from Wighton, when he’s caught it on the volley, and the one that he’s tipped onto the bar. A young goalkeeper, he’s only turning 21, he’s came in, he’s getting better every week” the Morton manager continued.

Hopkin was also keen to pay tribute to the work that goalkeeping coach Dave Timmins has done with the player since he arrived at the club. The Morton boss pointed out that even the little things in McAdams’ games have got better whilst working with Timmins.

“He’s getting better, he’s getting stronger, he’s getting fitter. The coaching that Dave Timmins gives him, you can it’s played a massive part, even his kicking and everything. His all-round game is getting better for such a young boy” Hopkin concluded.
