Inverness CT manager Billy Dodds has taken an incredible swipe at Morton’s Cappielow ground – insisting it isn’t fit for rats, never mind professional footballers.

Dodds watched his side get knocked out of the Scottish Cup by Morton last night, losing 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw, with the Caley Jags set to return to Cappielow this weekend on league duty.

The former Scotland striker branded it the worst he’s seen in 36 years in football, as he claimed Morton’s staff even apologised to him for the state of the Cappielow facilities.

“One of the portakabins has no lighting, which is a health hazard and I couldn’t put the players up there as you can’t see the stairs,” Dodds fumed.

“The toilets are a disgrace, the generator went off at half-time and I have had my team talk in darkness.

 

“I wouldn’t put vermin in there, it was that bad. It’s not sour grapes but Scottish football should be better than this.

“It’s a shambles. It’s not acceptable and my boys are sitting there freezing. For health and safety it is a disgrace.

“It’s not so bad in the summer but on a winter’s night it is a disgrace to be treated like that. I have never in 36 years seen anything like that.

“The Morton staff are good people and they apologised but it is disgraceful and disgusting. I don’t think any team should be treated like that.”

Inverness return to Cappielow on Saturday as they look to extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Championship table and push for a return to the top-flight.
