Celtic loanee will be like-for-like replacement to 25-year-old when deal ends
With some talk of Tom Rogic departing Celtic at the end of the season, one aspect that hasn’t been considered is that future Hoops signing Lewis Morgan way well be the Australian’s successor in the Hoops midfield.
The Hoops future of the 25-year-old has been up in the air since the Daily Record reported that Rogic and the Hoops had discussions but hadn’t reached a deal for a new contract for the player.
With Rogic set to have just a year left on his contract at the end of the season, the Hoops may have to consider selling him in the summer if a new deal can’t be agreed.
And Brendan Rodgers might think it is better to take the money for Rogic if he believes that Morgan can be a natural replacement for Rogic.
Morgan, who is set to arrive back at Celtic Park in the summer from St Mirren when his loan deal ends, plays in a similar attacking midfield role to the Australian. He also has a similar record of popping up with important goals, and has scored 14 goals for the Paisley side as they aim for promotion.

At only 21-years-old, Morgan has his entire career ahead of him, and the Hoops may well believe that he already has the ability to replace Rogic.
Only time will tell, but perhaps losing Rogic won’t be a complete disaster if Morgan proves to be a shred signing.
