'Morton defeat was an embarassment'

I was hoping after Tuesday’s demolition of Ross County I would finally have a glowing report for Motherwell but sadly that is not the case.

I am not being harsh when I say the display at Greenock Morton was an embarrassment to the club, to the manager, and to the fans. At times it was as if we had completely forgotten how to play football.

I have tried to keep my negative opinions on specific players under wraps but Liam Kelly needs to be dropped. He has cost us far too many games lately and is failing to do the basics.

Do not get me started in the lack of attacking options we have. Yes, our defence was woeful, and we were right to strengthen it during the window but relying on John Obika, who has spent more time in the Fir Park physio room than on the pitch, and Bevis Mugabi who is a centre-back to play up front is mind boggling.

I am ready to write this season off and start again in the summer. I have had enough of trying to defend the players and keep the faith, as it doesn’t seem the players have that faith in themselves anymore.
