Celtic winger Lewis Morgan came off the bench during Sunday’s defeat to Kilmarnock and showed brief glimpses that he can provide the attacking spark that Brendan Rodgers’ side needs.

Morgan was making just his second appearance for the club after his summer was ruined by injury.

Only just returning to full fitness, he was given 25 minutes on the pitch in place of the faltering Scott Sinclair, who again failed to show why he continues to be trusted to provide the goals and assists the team currently lack.

The 29-year-old has scored just one goal in 12 matches so far this season, a far cry from his scoring record in the previous two seasons. His form has been well below par throughout 2018 and many fans are growing sick of him.

Morgan has the pace, skill and hunger to succeed at the Hoops and must now be given an opportunity to show what he can do from the start of a match for the first time.

Although obviously in a division below the top-flight, last season Morgan scored an impressive 18 goals, also creating 13 assists. It was form good enough to be called up to the Scottish national team earlier this year.

Hopefully the 21-year-old can begin to realise some of his potential in the Hoops over the coming weeks and months.

Should Lewis Morgan start Celtic’s next match against St Johnstone in the Scottish League Cup? Have your say in our poll below…
