Former Celtic attacker Lewis Morgan has been very honest about his time at the club, the Scottish Sun reports.

Morgan left the Hoops to join Inter Miami at the end of the transfer window, after a spell at Celtic Park which saw him fail to hold down a regular first-team place.

Now Morgan has admitted that his time at the club didn’t go as well as he hoped it would.

“Didn’t do as well”

“I am probably my own harshest critic. I won’t hide from the fact that it didn’t go how I wanted it to go at Celtic and I didn’t do as well as I wanted to” Morgan said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

To be fair to Morgan, he was always going to find it tough to hold down a first-team spot on the wing, as Celtic have so many players in those positions.

 

That might be why when he did get a brief run in the Celtic side just before he decided to leave the club, it was as a striker, as the club had an injury crisis to deal with.

Can’t blame player for making move

You can’t blame Morgan for making the move to Miami though, and he was very unlikely to ever become a first-team regular.

Maybe the timing of the move was a bit unexpected, as Morgan had played in some vital games for the Hoops in December, such as the Betfred Cup Final.

However, the move seems to be the right one for both the player and Celtic, and it will be interesting to see how he gets on when the MLS resumes after the lockdown.
