Allan Moore is not enjoying making the end of contract decisions. The second of the Young brothers is on the look out for a new club as  former Aberdeen, Dunfermline and Dundee midfielder Darren Young has been told he will not be offered a new deal at Morton. e heads a list of six players that are on the look-out for new employers. Big brother Darren joins brother Derek in the hunt for a new club after his younger sibling was advised that he would not be getting a new deal at Aberdeen. Goalkeeper Kevin Cuthbert, defenders Kevin McKinlay and David MacGregor along with former Dunfermline midfielder Graeme Holmes, and ex-St Mirren and Queen of the South striker Stewart Kean are the others following Young through the exit door at Cappielow. Greenock manager Allan Moore has yet to make a decision on striker Derek Lyle, however he is keen to pursue talks with Carlo Monti and top scorer Brian Graham has been offered an extension. Moore has not enjoyed telling players that it is time to move on. He said: "This is my first year as a full time manager and telling players their contracts are not being renewed is probably the hardest thing I have had to do. When I was at Stirling Albion, the boys were only part-time and I did not really see them outside of football but this time I know them really well. It is not a nice thing to do but it is part of my job."
