Morrison clan split at East End

Dunfermline Athletic have secured the services of one Morrison but have so far been rejected by another.

Winger Owen Morrison has rejected the terms of a new one-year contract with the relegated club.

But wing-back Scott Morrison, who joined from Aberdeen in 2005, has extended his stay until next summer.

He told the Pars website: "I thought I was on my way, so it's good to get it all sorted out. The club has shown a lot of faith in me."

Morrison thanked Dunfermline for standing by him during a 15-month absence following a career-threatening injury suffered while on duty with Scotland Under-21s.

"I was in and out of the team towards the end of last season, but getting into the Scottish Cup final line-up reassured me that I was in the manager's plans," said the 23-year-old, who returned to action in November.

Morrison becomes the first of Dunfermline's out-of-contract players to agree a new contract ahead of next season's First Division campaign.

But namesake Owen, who has an option to play in China, told The Sun that he had so far been unable to agree a new deal.

"It's the length and value that I am not happy with," said the 25-year-old.

"It's not anywhere near what I was expecting."

Morrison joined Dunfermline from Bradford City last summer but made more than half of his 31 appearances from the substitutes' bench.
