Scunthorpe United midfielder Josh Morris, the man at the centre of the weekend’s ‘cheat’ storm, is poised to depart the club.
Morris has been widely condemned for scoring a controversial equaliser in their game with Plymouth Argyle. Pilgrims’ keeper Matt Macey went down injured, threw the ball out of play, but saw it kept in by Morris.
The former Blackburn man then curled it over the stopper’s head and into the net, making in 2-2 on the afternoon. The Iron went on to lose 3-2, but both club’s were relegated.
After the game, Scunthorpe chairman Peter Swann took all media interviews, stopping his players and manager from commenting. he wasn’t happy and it seems that Morris has played his last match for the club.
The Grimsby Telegraph report that he threw his shirt into the fans at the weekend, although nobody stopped it going in and kept it for themselves. He’s said the traditional ‘goodbye’ and is now set to leave the Iron as they embark on a new challenge in League Two.
Putting aside the whole ‘cheat’ storm, Josh Morris is a quality midfielder. he was spoken about in glowing terms last summer and remained at Glanford Park having fired them to a top six finish.
A man of his talents has no place in League One, but his new club might want to have a word about integrity and fair play, because right now his reputation as a professional is at a low.
