Livingston 0-1 Greenock Morton

Scottish Championship bottom club Greenock Morton earned their first victory under manager Kenny Shiels against Livingston.

On-loan Rangers winger Barrie McKay fired into the bottom right corner to end Morton's 526-minute wait for a goal.

Marc McNulty had a goal ruled out for offside as Livi searched for parity.

And McNulty came close again before Jason Talbot forced a save from Morton goalkeeper Derek Gaston.
