Sunderland academy graduate Michael Ledger has signed a new deal with Greenock Morton as he joins several players in pledging their futures to the Scottish Championship club.

After Gus MacPherson agreed a new deal to stay as manager at the club, Kyle Jacobs, Brian McLean, Gary Oliver, Cameron Blues and Robbie Muirhead all penned new contracts. Now former Sunderland man Ledger has agreed a one-year contract extension.

Ledger left Sunderland in 2018 for Norwegian side Notodden and returned to UK football in 2020 with Queen of the South. He signed for Morton last September and helped the Greenock club secure their Championship status in the league’s play-off final against Airdrieonians last month.

MacPherson has also signed defender Alan Lithgow from Scottish Premiership club Livingston, saying of the capture: “I’m delighted to be able to bring Alan here to Cappielow, his experience and quality will only benefit the club. He has competed in the Premiership for the last few seasons with Livingston but knows this league very well.”
