Loan move to English strugglers will do nothing for recent Celtic arrival amid reported interest
It appears that new Sunderland boss Jack Ross wants to reunite with his former St Mirren player Lewis Morgan.
The Scottish Sun are reporting that Ross wants to take Morgan, who recently moved to Celtic, on a season long loan-deal.
This is a move which the Hoops should avoid at all costs.
Really, what can the 21-year-old learn from playing in League One, which no matter what the critics say, is a far lower standard than the Scottish Premiership?
Morgan is better off trying to get into the Hoops side by impressing in training, even if that means not playing every week, than moving to the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland seem like a club in a bit of a mess, you don’t get relegated two seasons in a row if you are a stable club, and Morgan would be well-advised to be avoiding a move.
If Brendan Rodgers wants to loan the player, a team like Kilmarnock or even Hibernian seems much more realistic as he would have the chance to show how good he is against other Scottish Premiership sides, but he may not be loaned out at all.
With the Hoops set to have so many matches in the first few months of the season, Morgan seems certain to be involved at the early stage of the season, and he could be a useful squad player to have until January at least.
