The Daniel McRorie transfer fee


March 2, 1931
Probably Daniel McRorie himself will be the one to guide the Scottish League to a decision in the charge made against Greenock Morton of having paid him more than his legal share of the transfer fee when he went to Liverpool.

McRorie was two and a half years with Morton. By rule he was entitled to a sum at the rate of £130 per year. The allegation is that he received £400 and it is made by Mr. Williamson, a Morton director, who states that he refuses to be a party to the legal payment alleged.

A League Commission have inspected the Morton club’s books, but with inconclusive results, it is believed (says Jonathan Oldbuck).

Liverpool, it is understood, have received a communication from Mr. McAndrew, the Scottish League secretary.

According to Mr. Williamson, Liverpool paid £1,100 for McRorie’s transfer.
