Lewis Morgan is on his way out of Parkhead after putting pen to paper on a three-year contract to sign for Inter Miami, the newly formed MLS team of David Beckham.

With the Hoops rumoured to be at least getting their money back (£300k), the report in Football Insider claims that the deal is now done for the former St Mirren forward and that international clearance and a work permit are all that is holding up the formal announcement.

Neil Lennon appeared to have a soft spot for Morgan after regularly picking him earlier in the campaign and preferring him over Scott Sinclair for either a spot on the bench or the starting line-up when Odsonne Edouard was missing through injury but a series of uninspiring performances have seen him leave the club.

He was a surprise starter in the Betfred Cup final and despite the Hoops ultimately succeeding, he was largely anonymous and failed to make any real impact on Connor Goldson and Filip Helander at the heart of the Rangers defence.

Morgan joins Sinclair in making a move away from Parkhead after the latter joined Preston North End, also on a permanent deal, the exits paving the way for Patryk Klimala to join in a £3.5m move from Jagiellonia Bialystok.

Should Celtic continue to look in lower leagues for young talent after Lewis Morgan's failure?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Scotland cap Morgan signed as one of the most promising youngsters in the country in 2018 but will now look to relaunch his career in the States as he looks to get regular game time and fight his way back into the international reckoning. Hoops fans will hardly mourn his departure, such was the limited impact he had during his time at the club.
