Lewis Morgan has claimed that he could not turn down a move to Parkhead after agreeing terms with Celtic on Friday.
The 21-year-old signed a four-and-a-half year deal with the Scottish champions, but will spend the second-half of the season on-loan at his current club St Mirren.
Morgan disclosed that when he heard that the Hoops were interested in singing, there was no other option but to join the Bhoys.
“When a club like Celtic comes along, I don’t think you can turn it down. I think it speaks for itself. There was only ever going to be one choice”, he said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
He also revealed that Brendan Rodgers’ development of young talent as another reason for joining Celtic.
“The manager here has been great for young players and the development of young players. I’m sure it will benefit me as well and I can’t wait to work with all his coaching staff.”
Morgan has a great first-half of the season with St Mirren, scoring 13 goals in 26 games and leading them to the top of the Scottish Championship table after almost being relegated last season.
The speculation surrounding Morgan’s future seemed to encourage him to take his play to new levels, as his three goals in St Mirren’s last two games have taken them clear at the top of the Championship.
The winger becomes the Bhoys’ second signing of the January transfer window after experienced centre-back Marvin Compper joined from Leizpig.
The Bhoys are currently on their winter break and are set to head to Dubai before returning to domestic duty to take on Brechin in the Scottish Cup on the 20th of January.
