Lewis Morgan opens up about his his future with Celtic, and a possible reunion with former boss Jack Ross at Hibernian.
The Celtic youngster, Lewis Morgan, has had a tough go of it while trying to find his fit with the Hoops. Over the last two seasons, the player has been sent out on loan, and despite making some improvements, has not seen much playing time with the Hoops.
This season alone, the youngster has only played thirteen times for Neil Lennon‘s Celtic side, and despite injuries to key players, Neil Lennon is still preferring other options over Lewis Morgan. Morgan provides excellent depth at the winger position, but does not find himself starting much at the position.
Now, with the rise of Mohamed Elyounoussi, any of the extra minutes he may have been able to pick up are being utilized by the man on fire (aside from the current injury). So that begs the question: with less playing time, and now former manager Jack Ross at Hibs, could Lewis Morgan make the jump?
Well, speaking to the Herald Scotland, it sounds like Lewis Morgan is saying to pump the brakes a bit on that rumour:
“I know people have mentioned it [going on loan to Hibs] but he hasn’t!
“I know I haven’t played as much so I was delighted to get called up by the gaffer for the Scotland squad and it’s about trying to impress in training.
“It’s been brilliant at Celtic and the boys have been playing brilliantly. Obviously, it’s frustrating, no player is happy when they are not playing. But all I can do it work hard and try to impress the manager and be ready for when I get the chance to prove myself.”
Clearly not playing much has taken a toll on Lewis Morgan, but would he actually want to make a move from the legendary Celtic, to a club like Hibs? Also, would it make any type of sense for Neil Lennon to want to move that type of depth?
In short, yes, Lewis Morgan would probably enjoy playing for Jack Ross for the fourth time, and finding some extra minutes. And, no, Neil Lennon probably won’t let go of Lewis Morgan due to his skills and depth he provides at an important position. Especially with a deep run at the Europa League ahead.
