Some Celtic fans react to the potential sale of Lewis Morgan
Celtic fans have been reacting to the news that fringe player Lewis Morgan looks likely to leave the club.
The Brendan Rodgers’ signing, who has also been given chances under Neil Lennon, has reportedly flown home from the club’s training camp in Dubai (Daily Record) to try and sort a deal with new MLS side Inter Miami.
David Beckham’s new club are said to have offered Morgan a “lucrative long-term deal” after agreeing a “six-figure sum” with the Scottish champions.
And it’s a move that will go down well with all parties, if some of the comments from the Hoops faithful on Twitter are anything to go by.
That would be some move for Lewis Morgan to be fair, think he could take Jonny Hayes with him?

Just seen Inter Miami are linked with Lewis Morgan, probably nothing compared to playing for Celtic but what a life it would be living out there at the age of 23

Good move for Lewis Morgan if the deal to Inter Miami goes through. Nothing against the boy but never a Celtic player in his puff.

With both Lewis Morgan and Scott Sinclair moving on Celtic now have fewer left wingers than an episode of Question Time.

Morgan just wasn’t cut out for Celtic – there’s no harm in saying that
Those comments pretty much sum up the state of play regarding this proposed move. Not too many fans will be too gutted to see Morgan leave. He had a fair few chances to make his claim as a first-team player but never really took his opportunity when it mattered.
By the same token, he seemed like a pretty mature young man. He could never really be accused of hiding in a game despite his quality perhaps being in question.
There’s no doubting that a move to Miami is pretty enticing. He’ll be sampling warmer weather while also being part of a football club’s very first team.
However, he must be aware that it might be difficult for him to really make it as a player if he’s over in America. The MLS is growing every year but Europe is still the place to play if you want to become one of the greats.
Nevertheless we shake hands and both go our separate ways, wishing each other all the luck in the process.
