Lewis Morgan Tips 16-Year-Old St Mirren Kid Ethan Erhahon For a Big Career

Lewis Morgan has tipped 16-year-old St Mirren youngster Ethan Erhahon for a big career.

The Buddies wide-man has benefitted from breaking through at the club and forging his reputation in Paisley.

So much so that he’ll be a Celtic first team player in the summer after sealing a January move to the Hoops, but immediately returning to St Mirren on loan.

Once Morgan goes, fans will inevitably looks towards the next talent to come through the club’s youth academy – and that looks like being Erhahon.

St Mirren fans will already be well aware of him after he made his debut for the first team in the IRN-BRU Cup earlier this season.

And Erhahon’s regular involvement at Scotland youth level means he’s appreciated out-with Jack Ross and his coaching staff too.

Now Morgan has added to the hype around Erhahon, saying the 16-year-old midfielder has what it takes to go as far as he wants in the game.

Speaking to the SFA this week, Morgan, per scottishfa.co.uk, said: “Ethan has so many attributes and it’s up to him how far he goes.

“He trains with the first team regularly at St Mirren. Someone with his quality can’t let it go to waste.

“If he keeps working as hard as he is doing then people will hear a lot more about him sooner rather than later.”

Erhahon is in the Scotland Under 17s team alongside Chelsea talent Billy Gilmour and Hearts midfielder Harry Cochrane and his burgeoning reputation just adds to the hype around the next batch of Scottish youngsters.

Hopefully we see more of Erhahon in the St Mirren first team moving forward.
