'Only positive' - Lewis Morgan doesn't regret brief transfer from Celtic
Celtic attacker Lewis Morgan has revealed that he doesn’t regret his loan transfer away from Celtic in the second half of last season.
The winger moved to Sunderland after failing to make much of an impact in the first half of the season. Despite failing to win promotion with the Black Cats, Morgan felt that the move was only good for him.
“Needed to get games”
“I needed to get games, and the opportunity came up to go down south. It was only positive things that I took away from the experience” he told the Celtic Twitter account.

The move to Sunderland seems to have paid off for Morgan at Celtic so far this season. He featured in both legs of Celtic’s Champions League tie against Sarajevo.
He started the second leg, the 2-1 win at Celtic Park. It remains to be seen if he will start the match against Nomme Kalju on Wednesday night.
Seems to have impressed Hoops boss
However, it has to be said that the chances of Morgan starting the game are quite high. He looks to have impressed Neil Lennon since Lennon took over as Celtic boss.
It has to be said that Morgan’s ascension to the Celtic side may have come as a bit of a surprise to may at Celtic. He was out of the picture at the club last season.
However, he looks to be a player reborn under Neil Lennon. It could be a big season for Morgan at Celtic Park.
