Duberry, who is now featuring at Leeds United following Jonathan Woodgate's sale, was a popular figure at Stamford Bridge until his move to Elland Road.
The Enfield stopper move to The Whites for £4.5 million in July 1999, but has never commanded a regular first team spot during his time at the club.
Morris is out of contract at the end of the current season, but was quick to praise Duberry's spirit rather then comment on his own future.
"For the club I thought he (Duberry) was a great defender, he played with his heart, he wore his Chelsea badge on his sleeve, and he was brilliant for the dressing room," said Morris to Chelsea TV.
"I don't even think people realised what he did for the club, off the pitch, around the dressing room, he kept everyone in high spirits, a real joker and he loved his football as well, and he put everything into it.
"You'd know he was in just from the moment he walked through the door, he'd be shouting down the corridor trying to speak Scottish.
"I remember he used to try and emulate John Spencer."
