Kenny Shiels named as the new Morton manager



Scottish Championship strugglers Morton have appointed former Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels as the successor to Allan Moore.

Shiels will not take charge for this weekend’s game against Alloa Athletic, as caretaker David Hopkin will remain in charge for that match before returning to his job as development manager.

Currently bottom of the championship, two points behind Cowdenbeath and seven behind Queen of the South and Dumbarton, Shiels’ first task will be to steer Morton away from the relegation zone.

Shiels replaces Allan Moore who had been sacked by the Cappielow side after three years service and ran Partick Thistle close last season for the First Division title.
