Jim Duffy statement

In response to the conclusion of last night’s Ladbrokes Championship fixture against Hibernian at Easter Road, Morton manager Jim Duffy has today issued the following statement:

Firstly, I would like to say that I watched the footage on television last night and, from my point of view, I was embarrassed when I saw my reaction.

I am not going to get involved in a public debate with the Hibs manager, but what I would state is that I categorically, 100 per cent did not ask for a ‘square go’ or use anything even remotely like that term. Yes, I acted immaturely – but I’m not 12 years old.
