'Champing at the bit' - January signing can't wait for Celtic debut

Celtic winger Lewis Morgan has declared that he can’t wait to make his debut for the Hoops and prove wrong those who think he won’t be able to make it at the Scottish champions.

The 21-year-old joined the Hoops in January but spent the rest of the season on-loan at St Mirren, where he helped them win the Championship.

Now he is only concentrating on the Hoops, and he is hoping to follow in the footsteps of James Forrest and Callum McGregor, and make himself a mainstay in the side.

“Since I signed a deal in January I’ve been champing at the bit to get going,” he said, as quoted by the Evening Times.

“I’ve got to look up to guys likes Callum McGregor and James Forrest who’ve broken through here and become part of the first team.

“That is what is on my mind at the moment. I’m planning on coming back for the new season to make sure I get into the team.”

Football Insider verdict

Hoops fans will be delighted with the attitude shown by Morgan in his comments, as he obviously thinks that he is good enough to play for the Hoops on a regular basis. That is the kind of attitude that will get the attention of Brendan Rodgers, who might well be impressed with Morgan’s comments and attitude and give him a run in the first-team quicker than most people would expect. Morgan will be under no illusions about how difficult it will be to become a first-team regular with the Scottish champions, but when you have a chance to play for the biggest team in Scotland you have to take it, and Morgan must believe that he is good enough to make the breakthrough with the comments he has made. It will be a very interesting season for the player, and if he is good enough to back up his comments he could be a big player for the Hoops for many years to come.
