Former Norwich City assistant manager Jim Duffy insists he is ready for a fresh challenge after resigning as boss of Brechin City.

The former Dundee and Hibernian boss is looking for a return to full-time management after a 16-month spell at Glebe Park that included two unsuccessful play-off campaigns.

Duffy, pictured, who was number two to Peter Grant at Carrow Road before becoming caretaker manager on Grant's departure in late 2007, is a possible target for the vacancy at Morton.

Duffy said: "My reasons for leaving are quite simple as I felt the timing was right for both myself and the club. I have a good relationship with Brechin chairman Ken Ferguson and this allows us both time to move on.
