Tiff looking to make waves at Clyde

Excited winger Scott Tiffoney hopes to make a splash during his loan spell at Clyde and hopefully show he is ready for regular first-team football here at Morton when he returns in the new year.

The 18-year-old yesterday joined the League Two outfit, who currently sit third in the table, on an emergency loan until 4 January 2017 and trained with his new team-mates for the first time last night.

Youth academy product Tiffoney has been on the fringes on the Ton first XI this season, making three starts and 11 sub appearances, but agreed with manager Jim Duffy assessment he would be better served getting game time, and is looking to make the most of his opportunity at the Bully Wee.

Speaking to gmfc.net, he said: “I’ve signed for Clyde until the start of January, and it was something I was really keen to do, just to go out and get some first-team games under my belt and prove myself.

“I’ve felt I wasn’t get much out of the Under-20s games and the gaffer must have thought that as well and he suggested me going out on loan.

“Hopefully I can go to Clyde until January to show what I can do and come back and try and get in the Morton team. That’s what I’m hoping to get out of it.”

Tiffoney had a few senior clubs to choose from and says he selected the Broadwood outfit based on a number of factors, including the opportunity to link up with friend and former Ton team-mate Peter MacDonald.

He explained: “I had a few teams in for me and decided to go for Clyde. They’re local, Barry Ferguson is their gaffer and he has pedigree and someone you can learn from there.

“Peaso plays there as well, who I played with last year. I was close to Peaso because I used to travel in to training with him last season and he spoke to me a couple of times about coming to Clyde on loan. We’ve got Arbroath away tomorrow so I’m excited for that one.”
