Story of the season[edit]

May[edit]

David O'Brien and Derek Gaston were the first to sign their new contracts.[3] Archie Campbell was next to sign up for another season.[4]

Stranraer striker Craig Malcolm rejected a contract offer as he preferred to stay part-time.[5]

Peter MacDonald was offered a two-year deal by Dundee,[6] and Partick Thistle spoke to Aidan Fulton about a possible move to Firhill.[7]

Scott Taggart agreed a new one-year deal, and Aidan Fulton was offered a full-time deal to avoid him leaving for Partick.[8]

McNeil agreed to sign his contract with club, to follow in the footsteps of his father John McNeil.[16]

Thomas O'Ware signed his new contract, as did Mark McLaughlin.[17] Fulton also agreed to reject Partick Thistle and go full-time with Morton.[18]

Albion Rovers winger David Crawford was invited to pre-season training.[19]

Former JEF United Ichihara Chiba Reserves midfielder Ryan Hirooka was announced as being at the club on trial.[20]

Chris Millar was brought in as a coach for the U15 side.[23]

Morton signed ex-Hamilton Academical defender Jonathan Page on a free transfer.[24]

On 19 June, the fixture lists were released with Morton facing Cowdenbeath at Cappielow on the opening day.[25]

Morton rejected a £50,000 bid for Michael Tidser from Rotherham United,[26] a second bid for £50k up front was later accepted.[27]

Morton brought in three players to train with the squad for pre-season; Dougie Imrie,[28] Marc Fitzpatrick and James Creaney.[29]

Morton were drawn away to Annan Athletic in the Scottish Challenge Cup first round.[30]

Morton won the Renfrewshire Cup for the 52nd time, defeating St. Mirren at St. Mirren Park by four goals to two.[39]

September[edit]

It was announced that Cappielow would host the UEFA Youth League fixture between Celtic and Barcelona on 1 October.[48]

Scottish champions Celtic were humbled as Morton progressed to the League Cup quarter final with a 1–0 away victory.[49] Their reward was a home tie against St. Johnstone.[50]

Nicolas Caraux and Fouad Bachirou signed contract extensions to keep them at the club until the summer of 2015.[51] Joe McKee also extended his contract.[52] Stephen Stirling signed on again on a short-term deal until January 2014.[53]

November[edit]

Jake Nicholson signed after leaving Spurs in the summer.[59]

Allan Moore was sacked on 23 November 2013 after a 5–1 home defeat to Livingston.[60] David Hopkin would take interim charge of the club,[61] assisted by Derek Anderson.[62]

In Hopkin's second match in charge of Morton (the first being a 2–1 defeat at Cliftonhill in November 2002), they were eliminated from the Scottish Cup after a 4–0 thrashing by Inverness.

December[edit]

Ex-Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels was appointed as the new Morton boss.[63]

Jonathan Page was released,[74] while former St. Mirren striker Jack Smith signed for the development squad.[75]

Riordan didn't appear at training so Kenny Shiels ended his interest in the player.[76][77]

Michal Habai moved to Livingston on a free transfer.[78]

Morton's home match against Queen of the South on 25 January was abandoned after a spectator collapsed from a suspected heart attack.[79]
