STRIKER Kris Doolan insists that there is no bad blood after his departure from Ayr United, writes Christopher Dodds.

The former Partick Thistle hero left the Somerset Park club last week and signed a six-month contract with Morton as he joined up with fellow ex teammate Craig McGuffie who joined the club after his release last Thursday.

Doolan made 11 appearances for the Honest Men, scoring once before his exit last week and he insists that there was no bad blood between him or gaffer Mark Kerr.

He becomes the third player that Ayr have lost in recent weeks, with talisman Allan Forrest agreeing a Pre-Contract with Premiership side Livingston and Craig McGuffie also ending his contract early to then join Morton.

He said:

“There’s no bad blood at all, I just wanted to play games at this stage of my career,

“The manager was brilliant with me and didn’t stand in my way, he’s a great player and coach and totally understood where I was coming from with my decision, which I was thankful for.

“I had offers from elsewhere which I was privileged to have but hopefully I can just kick on now in a Morton shirt.“
