St Mirren manager Jack Ross has confirmed that Lewis Morgan is putting the finally touches to becoming a Celtic player before his officially announced by the Bhoys within the next 24 hours.

The winger is widely reported to be loaned back to the Championship leaders for the rest of the season, as he attempts to win them promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.

And now, Ross has detailed that Morgan has almost completed his medical in Glasgow.

“It has been well documented that he is finishing his medical about now,” he told Clyde 1.

“All being well with that, I think it will be confirmed (on Friday) at some stage.

“I am pleased for him in that respect but, until it is done officially, I don’t think he nor I would want to say too much.”

Ross also revealed that his relationship with Brendan Rodgers and Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell allowed them to strike a deal that will be beneficial to both parties.

“I am quite fortunate that I have a good relationship with Brendan…it has allowed us to get to a situation which is ideal with us by having him back for the rest of the season.

“That was really important for us so I am delighted and grateful that that is the case.”

Morgan made his debut for the Paisley side in 2014, in a defeat against Celtic, ironically enough.

He has flourished under Jack Ross and lead a St Mirren side that were almost relegated last season to the top of the Championship table.

He has also showed great maturity in dealing with all the speculation surrounding his future, and put it to positive effect as his three goals in the last two league games have helped the Buddies extend their lead in the Championship title race.

Morgan will be joining the Hoops just in time for their four Champions League group stage qualifiers at the start of next season, meaning that supporters could get a chance of watching Morgan play in extremely important matches early in his Hoops career.
