Greenock Morton manager Gus MacPherson has spoken on Kazaiah Sterling’s return to Tottenham Hotspur.

The striker arrived at Cappielow from Tottenham Hotspur on loan in the winter transfer window and has featured nine times for the Ton, scoring zero goals. His only 90 minute contribution was in the 1-0 away win against Inverness CT, which could be crucial to Morton’s Scottish Championship survival.

MacPherson said: “Kaz left us at the end of last week and has went back down to England to return to his parent club .I’d like to thank him for his contributions in the short time we got to work with him and I would also like to thank Tottenham for their assistance. Everyone at the club wishes him the very best for the future.”

Morton head into tonight’s crucial league match with champions Hearts off the back of a penalty shootout defeat in the Scottish Cup fourth round against Premiership Motherwell. It was a positive display and MacPherson is now challenging his players to ‘get over the line.’


He said: “I thought we were excellent against Motherwell. We competed for 120 minutes against a Premiership team and I enjoyed the performances. Were disappointed to lose but somebody has to. But I enjoyed the performance. The boys are disappointed but that’s the nature of football.

“They were in Sunday to prepare for the remaining three games. We have to try and do the same again. There’s reason why we are sitting where we are but it’s got nothing to do with attitude or endeavour. We have just got to get over the line and stay in the Championship.”
