It will be interesting to examine how players who rarely featured under Brendan Rodgers at Celtic fare under Neil Lennon.

One player to consider is Lewis Morgan, who featured 13 times for the Hoops – mostly as a substitute – before moving to Sunderland for the second-half of the season.

However, he is now back at Celtic, and will be hoping to feature more often next season. He can begin that process on the tour to Austria that the Hoops are currently on.

If Morgan can impress Neil Lennon on the tour to Austria, he could perhaps be involved in the Champions League qualifier against Sarajevo.

A new beginning at Celtic

It is a new beginning at Celtic under Lennon. That will apply to the players that were on the margin under Brendan Rodgers.

The problem for Morgan is that as a wide player, he is in competition with the likes of James Forrest and Scott Sinclair.

However, he can look to the example of Ryan Christie as a player who saved his Celtic career. Christie looked to be on borrowed time at Celtic until he managed to force his way into the first-team and hasn’t looked back.

Morgan must look to Christie as a player to emulate. His time at Celtic begins anew in Austria. It is up to Morgan to make sure that he takes the chance.
