St Mirren winger Lewis Morgan is set to play his last game for the Saints against Falkirk at the weekend, and will then complete his move to Celtic in the summer.

The 20-year-old has been in such good form for the Paisley side, helping them clinch promotion to the Scottish Premiership, that it seems that he will be given every chance to prove himself in the Hoops first team squad from next season.

The thing that must have really impressed Brendan Rodgers about the player is that even though the move to the Hoops was agreed in January, he did not let the transfer affect his game, and Morgan has 18 goals and 13 assists this season, which is a great statistic at any level.

Obviously the standard of the Scottish Premiership is much higher than that of the Championship, which Morgan has been playing in, but his standard of play has been so good that he has been by far the best player in that division this season, and looks likely to win individual honours at the end of the campaign.

Celtic wingers have been a mixed bag this season, with James Forrest and Scott Sinclair both being very inconsistent at times, and Patrick Roberts injury prone.

With none of those players pulling up trees at the moment – and two of them not guaranteed to be at the club next season – Morgan has a great chance of breaking into the first team squad and becoming a star.

It is up to him to take that chance when he gets it.
