In our weekly website feature, a Morton player will give both an insight into his career and the inside scoop on his Ton team-mates by answering a series of questions posed by media officer Jonathan Mitchell.
Name: Gary Oliver
Time at the club: This is now my second season.
Targets for the season: I usually always try and do better than I did the season before.
Greatest achievement in football: It has to be scoring at Ibrox in front of a massive crowd, that and representing my country at youth level.
Best ground you’ve played at: Ibrox. I used to go there as a kid and watch Rangers. It was a dream to play there.
Favourite band/musician: I like a bit of everything really, old to new music! Me and Doyley [Michael Doyle] have a good sing along in the morning on the way to training.
Favourite food: I usually go for an Italian but I’m not fussy! I can’t be because I eat Michael Tidser’s lunches every day.
Choose any three people to go on a night out with and why: Ross Forbes is a good laugh on a night out! Mikey Doyle is always at the centre of all the laughs. And Tids [Michael Tidser], if he’s allowed out, which is never very often!
Choose a team-mate to swap lives with for a day: I can’t think of anyone for this one.
Fastest team-mate: Jai is quick. I don’t think anyone else comes close!
Slowest team-mate: There are a few boys towing caravans! I won’t name names.
Most skilful team-mate: Mark Russell has lovely footwork and Gary Harkins can drop some moves.
Best dressed team-mate: Big Ricki is always smart.
Worst dressed team-mate: Big Gats [Derek Gaston] has been in his grandad’s wardrobe a few times I reckon, so it would have to be him.
Team hardman: Gary Harkins can go in heavy sometimes when he gets ragin’!
Best trainer: Tidser on his day is a guy who you would want in your team. Doyley trains hard; he puts the graft in.
Worst trainer: No one in particular. Everyone has had a bad day at the office at some time.
Best dancer: Tam O’Ware and Bob [McHugh] have some signature moves that always come out on a night out, so it’s got to be one of them!
Biggest Joker: Me and Tids are always on each other’s cases! But Marky Russell and Andy Murdoch are always up to something, especially to [wind up] Gary Harkins!
Most intelligent: Has to be Thommo [Robert Thomson]. Wouldn’t be hard with this bunch, though!
Least intelligent: Wee Tiff [Scott Tiffoney] isn’t the brightest. It would have to be him!
Biggest moaner: Ross Forbes is a grumpy old man!
Tightest: Hard one, because there’s a few boys who are tighter than two coats of paint, but I think Mikey Doyle wins this one. He would go to a different petrol station if he was saving a penny on his fuel!
If you could pick a wish for a team-mate, what would it be and for whom: For all the boys coming back from injury to stay injury free.
