Celtic’s Lewis Morgan has yet to play for the Hoops, but his quality as a player for St Mirren has been recognised.
The 21-year-old was named as Championship player of the year, as announced on the SPFL Twitter account.

Interestingly, he received the award in a Hoops strip, even though he has yet to play a game for the Scottish champions.

It is easy to see why Morgan was named as POTY, as he helped St Mirren to the Championship title, and ended the season with 18 goals and 13 assists.
However, dominating in the Championship does not equate to a first-team start for the Hoops, and he may have to bide his time before finding a regular place in the Bhoys’ line-up.
He is a tad unfortunate that his natural position is on the left-wing, and that is where James Forrest has just completed an excellent season for the Bhoys, so Morgan is not guaranteed a place in the starting line-up.
To be honest the player is probably well-aware that he is unlikely to be a first choice for the Hoops, as it isn’t easy for players to break into a team which has just won back to back domestic trebles.
Perhaps next season is all about getting used to playing for the Hoops for Morgan, and fans won’t see the best of him until the season after that. It would give him plenty of time to get used to the club.
