Brendan Rodgers has disclosed what target Lewis Morgan must overcome if he is to make a success of his time at Celtic.

The 21-year-old will join the Hoops at the end of the season after spending the rest of this season on-loan at St Mirren.

The winger has been in great form for the Paisley side this season, scoring 13 goals as they have move clear at the top of the Championship table.

However, Rodgers is well-aware of the difference in playing for a team like St Mirren compared to a team like Celtic, and he has set Morgan the target to be ready for the challenges which lie ahead.

As quoted by the Evening Times, Rodgers believes that players aren’t aware of the difficulties of playing for the Bhoys until they join the club.

“It is hard to tell, when they come to a big club” he said.

“You come to Celtic and it’s hard for lots of players so if he can cope with that level of scrutiny and pressure and expectations then he could be a wonderful player.”

Morgan is the second player to join the Hoops so far in January, the other being 32-year-old centre-back Marvin Compper, who has joined from Leipzig.

The Hoops are currently in Dubai on their winter break, but they return on the 20th of January to begin the defence of the Scottish Cup against Brechin as they aim to complete back-to-back domestic trebles for the first time in the club’s history.
