Signed in 2012 from Albion Rovers, “Gats” has been Morton’s Number One for four seasons, during which time he has experienced the highs and lows of being a Cappielow player, with a second place finish in the old First Division in 2012/13, followed by relegation the following season, an SPFL League One Champions medal in 2014/15 (when he was voted Player of the Year and included in the League One Team of the Year) and a top five finish in the SPFL Championship in 2015/16.
Last season he put pen to paper on a new deal that secures his Morton position until the end of 2017/18 season. Derek has reflexes and agility which belie his height and physique. Moving into his fifth season with the club, he has made 128 appearances (including one as a substitute) putting him into the Morton’s all-time “top ten” goalkeepers, in terms of appearances. His 40 clean sheets ( >31%), and average of 1.22 goals conceded per game are the best records in that Top Ten.
