Celtic loanee Lewis Morgan today made his 16th appearance for Sunderland, and it appears he’s impressing.

He didn’t bag a goal or assist this afternoon against Peterborough, but he did get a further 70 minutes before being hooked. The match ended 1-1, with Peterborough netting in added time after Max Power gave the Black Cats the lead with minutes remaining.

But today was just another positive outing for Morgan. He’s managed three assists and just two goals since his move in January, but fans of the League One side remain impressed with him. Starting their last four matches, it’s clear Morgan is starting to make an impression.

Here’s a look at what some of the Sunderland support have been saying about the Celtic man on social media this past week:


If Sunderland get promoted, should we let him return?

Morgan’s chances at Celtic next season could depend on a big pre-season. A new manager has yet to even be confirmed yet, so if a totally fresh appointment is brought in, Morgan has a clean slate here.

But it seems as though he’s starting to grow into his role in the North East of England. A slow start had Morgan starting just two of his first six games in League One. He’s yet to actually complete a single 90 minutes this season, but the game-time he’s getting down south has improved.

Therefore, with the likes of Maryan Shved and Daniel Arzani here next season, would it be worth giving Morgan another shot to keep improving his game down there? Especially at as decent and competitive a level as the Championship.

Celtic still have Jonny Hayes and Scott Sinclair down the left. It’s difficult to see Morgan jumping ahead of either of them. Should Timothy Weah come back, he’s another that can operate down the left, as well as Oliver Burke. If Celtic strengthen further to any extent in the summer, where are the opportunities for Morgan?

Him continuing his development in the Championship would be ideal. But if Sunderland don’t get promoted, should we take him back? Let us know your thoughts on the Morgan situation in the comments below.
