The most intriguing aspect of the nominations for Scotland’s young player of the year surround a player who has not yet kicked a ball for Celtic – Lewis Morgan.

The 21-year-old attacker, who is on-loan at his current club St Mirren until the end of the season, is one of the four players up for the award, along with his Hoops team-mate Kieran Tierney, Aberdeen’s Scott McKenna and Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos.

The nominations were announced on the PFA Scotland Twitter account on Wednesday.

The interesting part is that Morgan has been nominated whilst playing for a club in the Championship, which is a rarity for such a prestigious award.

Morgan has scored 18 goals for the Paisley side, and has helped them gain promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.

His form only got better after his move to the Hoops was announced in January, which can only be a good sign going forward.

There’s no doubt that Morgan will have his work cut out trying to become a regular for the Scottish champions, and he will have to up his game from the levels he has displayed so far for St Mirren.

But the signs are good, and if Morgan is able to continue his goalscoring form for the Hoops then he could have a very bright future ahead of him in the East End of Glasgow.
