Recent comments bode well for long-term Celtic future of January signing


Celtic winger Lewis Morgan has shown a commitment to the club which will no doubt impress his manager Brendan Rodgers.

Responding to reports in the Scottish Sun linking him with a loan move to Sunderland, the 21-year-old told BBC Sport that he was only interested in making the breakthrough at Celtic Park.

That is the kind of attitude from a player that Rodgers will love. To make it at a team like Celtic you need to think highly of yourself, and Morgan obviously thinks he is good enough to become a first-team regular with the Bhoys.

And why shouldn’t he? He was superb for St Mirren last season and helped then win the Championship title, which was the reason he won his move the the Hoops in the first place.

To be honest, a loan move to a team like Sunderland in League One in England wouldn’t suit Morgan, as if we are to find out how good a player he can be, he needs to be playing against a better standard of player than that.

Morgan’s belief in his own abilities is certainly good to see, and if he manages to transfer that attitude to the pitch then it bodes very well for his long-term future with the Bhoys, and he could turn out to be a valuable first-team player for the Bhoys next season.
