Mr McGraw inducted into Scottish Hall of Fame

Club legend Allan McGraw has tonight been inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame during a gala ceremony at Hampden Park.

The 78-year-old, dubbed Mr Morton for his many years at Cappielow, served the Ton with distinction, first as a striker in the 1960s, scoring an incredible 61 goals in 1963-64 alone, and then as manager in the 80s and 90s.

Mr McGraw joins ex-Ton stars Joe Jordan, Billy Steel, Jimmy Cowan, Bobby Evans, and Stevie Chalmers in the list of greats to be recognised for their contribution to the Scottish game.

Another ex-Ton player, John Clark, was also inducted at this evening’s event. Clark, best known for his time at Celtic, ended his career at Cappielow, spending two seasons here between 1971 and 1973.

Everyone at Greenock Morton Football Club would like to congratulate Allan and John on their prestigious and richly-deserved honours.
