'Big name to live up to' - Lewis Morgan delivers verdict on comparison to Celtic legend
New Celtic signing Lewis Morgan has admitted that there are similarities between himself and Hoops legend Lubo Moravcik.
The 21-year-old, who will spend the rest of this season on-loan St Mirren, shares with the Slovakian midfielder the ability to take corners and free-kicks with both feet.
Morgan has admitted that the comparison is a big one to live up to.
“It’s big name to live up to but I take set-pieces from both sides and if I get do it here, I’d be the same” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
The winger also revealed that his two-footed ability was developed at a young age so it would help him stand-out from other players and get more playing time.
“It wasn’t natural for me – it was something from a young age I wanted to do to give myself the biggest chance to progress.”
Morgan hasn’t let the move to the Hoops go to his head, as his good form with St Mirren continued throughout weeks of speculation linking him to the Scottish champions.
He has scored 13 goals and has eight assists in 27 appearances this season, and has lead St Mirren into a clear lead at the top of the Scottish Championship, as they sit currently six points ahead of second placed Dundee United.
Morgan’s future team-mates are currently on their winter break in Dubai, and are set to return to action on the 20th of January to begin their defence of the Scottish Cup with a match against Brechin City.
