Morton manager Jim Duffy has revealed that “not even a night out with Kylie Minogue” would have helped pick him up after the League 1 club’s shock Scottish Cup exit to Spartans last month.

He was yesterday named as manager of the month for November due to the Greenock club’s fine league form, but Duffy said it has done little to ease the pain of losing 2-1 to the Lowland League outfit in the fourth round of the competition.

“No award could pick me up from the Spartans result,” said Duffy. “I could have had a night out with Kylie Minogue and it would have made no difference.

“I’ve had a lot of disappointing results, so I don’t look at it and say it was the worst ever. But since I’ve came here it was the worst.

“You have good times and you have bad times and you have to make sure the bad times are few and far between.”

Meanwhile, Spartans will find out tonight who they will face in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup. Albion Rovers host Berwick Rangers in their fourth-round replay, with the winners due at Ainslie Park on February 7.
