Morton manager Jonatan Johansson has left the Cappielow side just hours before their Scottish Championship clash with Dundee United.
JJ, who replaced Ray McKinnon at Cappielow after leaving Rangers has secured the Ton a fifth-place finish in the league had his abrupt departure confirmed by the club’s Twitter account.
Chris Millar and Jim McAlister will be in the dugout for the clash with Dundee United after Johansson’s assistant Peter Houston also left the club.
Despite their relatively secure league position, Morton’s form hasn’t been good enough and they should have been in a better position to challenge for a playoff place this term.
With little information available about for the reason behind Johansson’s departure, Morton fans will want to know what is going on behind the scenes at Cappielow.
Johansson spoke to the media yesterday about his plans for the side so his departure doesn’t seem to be something that was planned well in advance so it will be interesting to see what happens next.
After Ray McKinnon’s acrimonious exit from Cappielow to join Falkirk, JJ leaving in such an abrupt way won’t reflect well on the Cappielow board.
