Lewis Morgan Earns Some New Fans After Impressive Scotland Cameo

Lewis Morgan has earned some new fans after his impressive cameo for Scotland.

The new Celtic winger got just 20 minutes of the friendly against Peru in the early hours of this morning, replacing Matt Phillips for his international debut.

His call-up was a huge achievement in itself considering Morgan has spent the full season with St Mirren in the Championship.

But getting off the bench will just add to the hype that surrounds his switch to the Hoops this summer – and much more will be expected of him after seeing this cameo.

Morgan was a constant threat on the wing and showed manager Alex McLeish that he has something to offer for the Tartan Army.

Fans were certainly impressed:

Morgan actually signed for Celtic in January, but returned to St Mirren on loan immediately – and helped fire them to the Championship title under Jack Ross.

He’ll now hope to contribute as heavily to Celtic’s push for an eighth Premiership title and success in both domestic cups as well as in Europe.
