Soon to be Celtic winger Lewis Morgan is very confident that he will be able to make the break through and become a first-team regular at Celtic Park, however he has admitted it will be challenging.
Morgan – who is one of four players that have been nominated as Scotland’s young player of the year – joined the Hoops in January and is due to arrive properly at Parkhead in the coming months as he has spent the rest of the season with his current club St Mirren.
His 18 goals helped the Paisley side win the Championship and have given the 21-year-old plenty of confidence as he looks forward to his first season with the Hoops.
“I have high expectations of myself, I have confidence in my own ability and I know going into a club like Celtic it will be a challenge and very demanding” he said, as quoted by the Sunday Post.
“But I have that belief in myself that if I’m given a chance, I will be able to show everyone why they were interested in me in the first place.”
Football Insider verdict
Brendan Rodgers will be delighted by those comments from Morgan, it is always good to see when a player has faith in their own abilities and Morgan will need plenty of that if he is to make it with the Hoops. He is unlikely to be a regular first-team starter for the Hoops going into next season, but if he impresses the Hoops boss he has a more than decent chance of becoming a first-team regular. He will want to avoid the fate of a Ryan Christie, who has spent the last 18 months out on loan from the Hoops, and will be making strides to ensure that he is a regular pick for the Bhoys next season, and this is a good way to go about that.
