Steven Thompson has backed his former St Mirren team-mate Lewis Morgan to be big success at Celtic.
The 21-year-old attacker has been confirmed by St Mirren boss Jack Ross to be on the verge of signing for the Scottish champions in a deal which is expected to see him return to the Paisley side for the rest of the season.
Thompson believes that the player’s ability to let nothing faze him will help him adapt to life at a big club.
“He impressed me just as much away from the pitch when I played with him at St Mirren.” Thompson said, as quoted by The Herald.
“He had only just broken into the first team picture and moved into our dressing room, and he was a really quiet, conscientious person by his character. He’s not loud, he’s not a show-off, and he just gets on with his work.
“He’s extraordinarily level-headed for one so young, and he doesn’t seem to let anything faze him or bother him.”
Those qualities underlined by Thompson seem to fit in with the type of player that Brendan Rodgers wants to bring in to Celtic Park.
Morgan hasn’t let anything bother him since the speculation surrounding a move to the Bhoys intensified, in fact he’s used it to spur him on to even better performances.
His three goals in his last two games against Dundee United and Morton have helped St Mirren move clear at the top of the Championship in the battle for promotion to the Scottish Premiership.
Morgan’s temperament will certainly be tested if he makes his Hoops debut in the four Champions League qualifying rounds at the start of next season.
Those games will be a good test of how much he is going to be involved in the first-team at Celtic Park in his first season with the club.
