Ex-player David Hopkin returns to Morton as manager
Hopkin played for the Greenock club and previously had a stint on the coaching staff.
Morton have appointed their former player and coach David Hopkin as their new manager.
Hopkin took Livingston into the Premiership last season before an ill-fated spell at Bradford City in English League One.
The 48-year-old ex-Scotland international replaces Jonatan Johansson, who left the club before their final Championship match of the season.
Morton chairman Crawford Rae said: "Attracting David back to the club is a massive coup for us, especially when he has been offered so many positions since leaving Livingston.
"David is a phenomenal coach and we are delighted that he will be working to further develop our home-grown talent while building a squad that will hopefully bring absent supporters back to Cappielow."
Hopkin made his Morton debut in 1989 and moved to Chelsea three years later before captaining Leeds United in the Premier League and eventually returning to Greenock.
