Neil Lennon should give Lewis Morgan a bigger role than Brendan Rodgers did at Celtic?

Lewis Morgan was a fringe player under Brendan Rodgers.

In January 2018, Celtic beat off widespread competition to land St Mirren starlet Lewis Morgan before sending him back on loan for the remainder of the season.

Morgan scored 18 goals from the wing for St Mirren to earn them promotion to the Scottish Premiership so Celtic fans were understandably excited when he joined up in summer 2018.

But the young winger found game time hard to come by during his first half-season with the Scottish heavyweights, managing just 13 appearances in green and white.


In the January window, Brendan Rodgers sanctioned a loan move for Morgan. The 22-year-old teamed up with his former St Mirren boss Jack Ross at Sunderland.

And now seven games into his loan spell in the English third tier, Morgan is rediscovering his touch and his confidence, having netted his first goal.

Sunderland are aiming for automatic promotion this season and Morgan can be the man to deliver that if he gets back to his best.

And if the twice capped Scotland international is able to impress for the Black Cats, he could be given a fresh chance at Celtic when he returns next summer.

With Rodgers gone and Neil Lennon at the helm, Morgan has a new manager to impress. If Lennon is given the full time role, he must consider using the youngster more regularly than Rodgers did.
