Impressive cameo offers Lewis Morgan hope of proper Celtic opportunity

The 22-year-old was in fine form during a 25-minute appearance as a substitute against FK Sarajevo.

Celtic kicked off their Champions League campaign with a comfortable 3-1 victory over FK Sarajevo last night.

The Hoops will look to reach the group stages of the competition again under Neil Lennon and the second leg of this contest should now be routine.

Mikey Johnston, Odsonne Edouard and Scott Sinclair netted the goals for Celtic who did trail briefly after Mirko Oremus’ 29th-minute goal.

A somewhat surprising aspect of last night’s win was the cameo of Lewis Morgan.

The 22-year-old was introduced as a substitute in the 65th minute; producing an eyecatching 25 minutes on the wing.

 

Morgan signed for Celtic for £300k in 2018 (Daily Record). During the January transfer window, he was farmed out to Sunderland on loan for the second half of the campaign.

His two goals and four assists didn’t exactly set League One alight and it left a question mark over what would be in store for the player during 2019/20.

On last night’s showing, there is every possibility that Morgan can force his way into Lennon’s plans for the forthcoming campaign.

The ex-St Mirren man claimed an assist for Sinclair’s goal and was largely impressive throughout his time on the pitch.

Morgan might have to be patient to become the first choice. Last night he offered a sweet reminder to Lennon of the quality he is capable of, however.

The Celtic boss isn’t blessed with loads of options in wide areas and that could see the former Black Cats loanee stick around next season.
