Allan James Morrison (born 31 March 1982 in Irvine) is a Scottish footballer currently playing for junior side Glenafton Athletic.

Career[edit]

Morrison began his career with Celtic, but failed to play a first team game for them. He then had a short spell at Carlisle United, but did not play many games 10 in total before injury and administration cut his spell short

He moved back to Scotland to join Clyde. Morrison was the 2nd choice goalkeeper for his first season, only making one start. He made his debut by replacing the injured Bryn Halliwell in a Scottish Cup tie against Motherwell in February 2003. Morrison started Clyde's opening league game of the 2003-2004 season due to Halliwell being suspended, but despite keeping a clean sheet, he was relegated to the bench for the next match. He waited just under 3 months for his next action, and a string of good performances saw Morrison hang on to the #1 jersey for several months making over 30 appearances until Halliwell reclaimed it after injury to Morrison. He made only two appearances in the 2004-05 season, before joining Stranraer on a free transfer.He Played over 40 games for stranraer before a bust up with manager gerry Briton saw him leave the club.

Morrison dropped out of the senior game in 2007 to join local junior side Glenafton Athletic.

After retiring from playing Morrison is now Head Goalkeeping coach at Ayr United.
