A million and one rumours flying around about why they’ve gone, many of which  would make us look tinpot as f**k if true... and I don’t give a f**k.

Johansson being gone is tremendous news.

They went because your chairman told them the couldn't play Charlie Telfer because it would trigger some sort of clause that would cost the club money. 

Not a windup. 

Source - a current Falkirk employee who knows a current Morton employee. 

Maybe gives you guys a hint of why McKinnon was so desperate to get out of Cappielow.

Telfer had to play today to activate extension clause. JJ wanted to play him. Hawke and Rae told him not too - so they both walked. I respect JJ and Houston a lot for this. Board are a shambles

Totally agree, if this is true.

What a fucking minter. Get this board to f**k. No chance a decent/aspiring manager will come near us.

Odds on Morton to be relegated next season? Sounds like you're going to be run into the ground. Sad!

Seen better players kept from playing for similar reasons. It's a meaninglessness fixture. Genuinely don't see the issue

Chief execs or any other board member shouldn’t dictate to managers what players they can or can’t play regardless of whether it’s a meaningful game or not.

Why would you not want to keep Telfer? :unsure2:
Why would you let your management team walk over an issue surrounding 1 player?

Crawford Rae is an absolute c**t of a man.
Hawke was more bearable when he had no actual input on anything.

Sack the board ffs

Even if useless and deserved to be sacked, the circumstances about the reason over the resignations especially the financial aspects seem to be extremely concerning.   

The last thing needed is for another decent local Scottish club to suffer a horrible future, hopefully Morton can get a decent board in at some point and build for the future.

With the exception of the horrid Glasgow  green and blue duo, I would like to see Scottish clubs do well regardless of rivalry.

What a beautiful day. Managed to get rid of another dud management team without compensation.

Giving a high earner a new contract in a meaningless game rather than giving a new manager a chance to decide if he wants to keep him or not doesn't make financial sense when we need to make the most of our budget next season.

Only downside is that we were stupid enough to offer contracts with those clauses in it to loads of players last summer which is crazy at this level.
