Morrison snub to possible Palace return

Last updated : 22 May 2005 By Nik Taylor

Ex-Palace striker Clinton Morrison has launched a scathing attack on the chances of him rejoining his former club.

The Birmingham player is apparently prepared to leave St Andrews in search of first-team football – and rumours surrounding Palace’s Andrew Johnson have led to suggestions of both players returning to their former clubs in a swap deal.

But Irish international Morrison has ruled out any chance of his returning to Selhurst Park.

"I've seen all this stuff about AJ and Palace and, what the strength of it is, I don't know," said Morrison.

"But there would be no way I would go back to somewhere I left to further my career in the first place. I wouldn’t join Palace again, that's for sure."
