Dougie Imrie commits his future to the Ton

Manager Dougie Imrie has today signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract at Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology.

The new contract sees Dougie stay with us until Summer 2026. Since joining, Dougie has gone on to become the longest-serving Manager in the division having been at Cappielow for over 2 years now.

During his two years at the helm, Dougie has an over 40%-win rate, as well as being undefeated in over 70% of matches he has managed. There have also been memorable cup dates under his tenure, with trips to Celtic Park and Ibrox in the last 12 months.

Securing Dougie is the next big step for the club after Ryan Mullen, Iain Wilson and Logan O’Boy committed their futures to the club in the last couple of weeks as well as adding the pre-contract signing of Jordan Davies from Connah’s Quay Nomads with the club and manager looking to build for next season.

General Manager, Dale Pryde-MacDonald has said, “As a club, we are delighted to get Dougie’s new deal signed. He has been an integral part of what the club has become over the last couple of years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with him and his staff so far.”

“It’s very clear to see we have one of Scotland’s most promising young managers here and we want Dougie to keep adding blocks to the foundations he has laid for the club with the support of myself and the board. Dougie is currently the longest-serving manager in the Championship and that is a testament to the hard work and commitment he gives to his role and the football club.”

“Prior to when I joined the club, although we were in a bad spell of form due to injuries, I was very comfortable that we had the right man in the dugout and that has been proven over recent times. It is my job to enable Dougie and his staff and to give them my utmost support as they go forward.”

John Laird, Chairman added, “The Board, along with the General Manager were keen to look at Dougie’s future to make sure we best protected the football club. The statistics since Dougie has joined Greenock Morton speak for themselves and he has a clear identity and vision of where he wants to take the football department which the Board and General Manager are working to support.”

“As well as being the longest-serving Manager in the Scottish Championship, Dougie has proven himself capable of building squads that can compete in the top half of the league which is encouraging for everybody to see. We will continue to support Dougie’s development and progress as much as possible in the times ahead.”
