Greenock Morton Football Club is a Scottish professional football club, which plays in the Scottish Championship. The club was founded as Morton Football Club in 1874, making it one of the oldest senior Scottish clubs. Morton was renamed Greenock Morton in 1994 to celebrate the links with its home town of Greenock.
Morton won the Scottish Cup in 1922, and achieved its highest league finish in 1916–17, as runners-up to champions Celtic. Morton holds the record for the most promotions to and relegations from the top flight (10 promotions and 10 relegations), but has not competed in the top flight of the Scottish football league system since 1988. In 2014–15, Morton won its tenth league title in all divisions by winning the Scottish League One championship on the final day.
Dark Blues battle back
Goals from Gavin Rae and Ryan Conroy either side of half-time cancelled out an early strike by Andrew Jackson.
The home side stormed into a fifth-minute lead when Jackson slotted in from close range after good work from Paul Di Giacomo.
But just as Morton looked to be heading into the break in the lead, Dundee equalised through midfielder Rae who finished confidently after being set up in the box by Ryan Conroy.
After the restart the away side looked to take the initiative and were duly rewarded when the dangerous Conroy found the net with a sweet left-footed finish from close range with 56 minutes gone.
