Biography

Stevie Morrison's short tenure as Clydebank manager was during one the most fraught periods in the club's history. After the Steedman family sold out to Dr John Hall, promises aplenty were made to supporters and it seemed to be true at first as Ian McCall was made manager and players of the calibre of Joe McLaughlin, Derek McWilliams and Fraser Wishart were brought to the club who were in the second division at the time. Stevie Morrison was part of McCall's backroom staff.

Morrison had a long playing career primarily with Dunfermline for whom he made over 250 appearances, but also had stints with Clyde and Dumbarton.

Hall's promises were soon found to be hollow as a prospective move of the club to Dublin was the ill-fated motive behind his purchase of the club. As this venture was blocked by the authorities, Hall's interest soon waned and the club suffered massively as a result.

With the club bottom of the first division in January 2000 with no wins and only four draws in 21 games, manager Ian McCall jumped ship to Greenock Morton. Stevie Morrison took over the reins and could not prevent a humiliating relegation ending the season with only 10 points.

The worst thing in this debacle was that the club suffered severe player shortages and Morrison was forced to play as goalkeeper on four separate occasions. Morrison was a centre forward. He did not let himself down, even when faced withe the might of Hibernian he managed to keep the score down to three.

At the end of the season it wasn't clear that Morrison wanted to carry on in the job with the continuing chaos. Rumours of a takeover led to Morrison stating that he would be willing to revert to assistant if interested new owners wanted to bring someone new in. In any event, Tommy Coyne was brought in as player manager and Morrison left the club.
