Morrison ready to reclaim Mr Consistent title

Albion midfielder reveals joy at his return to form

JAMES Morrison believes he is finally enjoying his football again and ready to reclaim his ‘Mr Consistent’ title.

The Scotland international accepts that last season was not his strongest campaign.

But Morrison has been a regular in Alan Irvine’s side since his return from a pre-season knee operation.

The 28-year-old, who scored Albion’s winner in the 1-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur last month, said:  “Last season was probably the first time in my West Brom career that I’ve been disappointed with my form.

“This season I am trying to enjoy it, play well and feel good. At the moment I’m enjoying it.

“Last season might have just been one of those seasons that anyone can have.

“I have been at the club for a long time and most of the time I’ve been ‘Mr Consistent’.”

Morrison, after Luke Daniels, is the club’s longest-serving player, signing for Albion back in summer 2007.

He continued: “My performances are better this season and I think everybody can see that.

“Myself and Craig (Gardner) have been combining well and I’m the deeper one of the two at the moment, which is unfamiliar.

“I’m getting the ball, driving from midfield and passing it forwards and that’s what I’m all about when I’m playing well.

“Hopefully I can continue that and keep some other good players out of the team.”

Morrison is currently away on international duty with the Scotland side.

Gordon Strachan’s side face two tricky Euro 2016 qualifiers – taking on Georgia at Ibrox this Saturday, before travelling to Poland for next Tuesday’s game in Warsaw.

Morrison is looking forward to both:  “It is a different opportunity, a different challenge and a different mindset so I’m looking forward to it.

“They are important games for us which I’m delighted to be a part of.”
