The co chairman has regularly attempted to help Morrison over the past 18 months as his Hammers career has tottered from crisis to loan spells and back again.
And he told ClaretandHugh in an exclusive interview: “I can’t tell you how disappointed I am that the young man has allowed it all to slip by him at Upton Park.”
“I have constantly encouraged him, gone out of my way to tell him how well he’s done after a good game, have had regular chats with him and put an arm around his shoulder when he hasn’t been picked.
“He takes being dropped harder than anyone I’ve known – he appears to take it personally. But dealing with all that is part of the game. After all he’s not Ronaldo but I really do wish him well wherever he goes.”
