When Celtic signed Lewis Morgan from St Mirren in January in a deal which saw him stay at the Paisley club for the rest of the season, there was a collective shrug of shoulders from fans.
The league-leading attacker had done very well at Championship level, but would the 21-year-old have what it takes to break into the Hoops side? Going by some recent performances from the Bhoys, the answer is yes.
The player, who joined the Hoops in a deal worth £300,000, did the right thing in allowing the player to remain at his current club for the rest of the season.
Rather than being a bit-part player for a Hoops side which at times seems to be stuttering towards the title, Morgan is propelling St Mirren to promotion, and has scored 17 goals this season in the process.
The player should be full of confidence heading to Parkhead after the season he has had, and he could play a big part in the Bhoys’ Champions League qualifiers, which are set to begin in July.
The likes of Tom Rogic and Stuart Armstrong, who Morgan is likely to be competing with for a first-team place, haven’t had the greatest of seasons for the Hoops, both players have struggled with inconsistency and injury.
Morgan has a great chance to make it at the Hoops, and perhaps his signing will turn out to be a bargain in the end, we will know for sure beginning in July.
