Video: Lewis Morgan Responds to Those Who Doubt He’ll Play at Celtic

Lewis Morgan has responded to those who think his move to Celtic is the wrong one because he won’t play.

The St Mirren winger has been linked with a switch to the Hoops over recent months and that talk intensified over the last week, with a transfer expected to be confirmed at the beginning of January.

It’s also expected that Morgan will be immediately loaned back to the Buddies, allowing him to continue contributing to the team’s push for the Championship title.

But some believe he’d be making the wrong decision in moving to the Premiership champions, claiming that he won’t play regularly in the long run.

Of course, Gary Mackay-Steven, Scott Allan and Ryan Christie are examples of young Scottish talent who have found games hard to get after moving to the Hoops.

Mackay-Steven is away from the club permanently, while Allan’s Parkhead career is nearing an end as he’s out on loan with Dundee.

Christie is slightly different as he’s one of Aberdeen’s best players while on loan there and it’s likely he’ll be in Rodgers’ plans when he does return.

But what about Morgan? Fans may have their opinions, but the winger – fresh from scoring a double in St Mirren’s 2-0 win over Dundee United last night – believes that he’ll prove his doubters wrong:

It’s good to see such confidence from the 21-year-old winger – and that attitude should certainly help him during his career at Celtic.

Of course, no deal has been completed yet, but everything points towards him becoming a Celtic player and it will be very interesting to see how he develops at the club.
