On loan Celtic star Lewis Morgan made a big impression on Sunderland supporters today, scoring in a vital 2-0 League One win at home to Doncaster Rovers.
Sunderland are fighting hard for promotion back to the English Championship right now and after a draw and a defeat in their last two matches badly needed a victory at the Stadium Of Light.
Lewis Morgan, who was sent on loan to the Black Cats in January by Brendan Rodgers, banged in the opening goal within ten minutes to settle nerves and send the home team on their way to victory.
It was the Celtic winger’s first league goal for the club after previously assisting three times and scoring in the EFL Trophy semi-final.
His all-round performance impressed supporters, many of whom are hoping he can stay in Sunderland next season.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Lewis Morgan gets better the more he plays too, should….should we go up another loan would benefit his development and help us

Lewis Morgan was immense today. If we can get him again next season we're sorted for our creative spark

Important win. Hard to single out a standout peformer but Lewis Morgan and Lee Cattermole were excellent. Said for a long time I didn't get why Jimmy Dunne was dropped. We conceded 1 in 6 then was dropped. Strange. He's not perfect but better than Baldwin/Flanagan. #safc

Lewis Morgan is going to be a star. Wish there was some chance we could bring him back permanently next season.
