According to one of the latest reports by The Daily Mail, Celtic, Rangers and Swansea City have put St Mirren’s promising starlet Lewis Morgan on their radar. Morgan has been on the wish-list of many clubs, and during the summer transfer window, English Championship outfit Burton Albion saw their bid of around £250,000 getting rejected by the Saints, as per one of the reports by The Scottish Sun.
As it stands, there could be a lot of clubs attempting to make him sign on the dotted line during the January transfer window. As mentioned, Brendan Rodgers’ outfit are also keeping a close tab on the prospect of luring Morgan to their ranks.
The Celts were absolutely flamboyant in the domestic competitions last season as they went on to clinch the Scottish Premiership, Scottish Cup and League Cup to secure a domestic treble in emphatic fashion.
In order to keep the winning mentality intact, the former Liverpool boss added some quality names like Jonny Hayes, Patrick Roberts and Olivier Ntcham to his arsenal during the transfer window. However, enhancing the quality as well as deepening the depth of his side is also a priority and someone like Morgan could be an appealing addition for the Hoops. Thus, it is perceived that the Celts could line up a bid to sign him after four months.
The 20-year-old emerged through the youth ranks of Rangers but he couldn’t pave his way into the senior side of the Gers. He eventually made a move to St Mirren Park and his prolific form for quite some time now haven’t gone unnoticed. He is seemingly likely to be personally vouching for a new endeavour now, having proved his mettle with the Buddies, and a move to the Celtic Park would be an upward step in his career.
Morgan is predominantly an attacking midfielder and is versatile enough to ply his trade on either wing. Despite his young age, he has shown immense maturity and calibre so far and it has outgrown his St Mirren teammates. The Scot is capable enough to smash goals on a regular basis and creates ample amount of chances for his side as well.
In 8 appearances across all competitions for Jack Ross’ side so far this season, Morgan has bagged 5 goals and no wonder why his stocks are so highly rated. He is well accustomed to Scottish football and at the onset, it does appear that the prospective deal has the ingredients to be an astute signing for Celtic.
