Recent Inter Miami signing Lewis Morgan has no regrets about his two years with Celtic, the Daily Record reports.
The former Hoops winger completed a perhaps unexpected move to the MLS side on the final day of the January window.
Morgan was never a first-team regular in his time with Celtic – he made 31 appearances in his two years with the club, and spent the second-half of last season on loan at Sunderland.
Despite his lack of game time, Morgan does not regret joining the Hoops.
“There were a lot of positives experiences in my time at Celtic although things didn’t quite work out the way I had hoped” Morgan said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“Good memories and experiences”
“I maybe never achieved what I wanted to achieve at Celtic but I still played in some massive games in Europe and cup finals and I will have some good memories and experiences from my time at such a massive club.”
Presumably, the fact that Morgan never held down a regular first-team spot at the Hoops meant that he never achieved as much as he hoped to at Celtic.
However, he did play in some ‘massive’ games, ironically enough only a month before he left the Hoops.
Due to an injury crisis, Morgan was forced to play as a striker, in the Europa League match against Rennes, and in the Betfred Cup Final against Rangers.
Performed admirably in Europa League fixture
He performed admirably in the Europa League match, scoring in a 3-1 victory. He didn’t fare as well in the Betfred Cup, as he was substituted and replaced by Odsonne Edouard, but he can still be proud that he started for the Hoops in a cup final win over Rangers.
Sometimes it just doesn’t work out for a player at a particular club, and that seems to be the case with Lewis Morgan. Still, it is good to see that he has no regrets about his time with Celtic.
