Lewis Morgan's career resurgence gives hope to squad players

A short time ago few people would have believed that Lewis Morgan would start a Champions League qualifier for Celtic.

The player was so out of favour under Brendan Rodgers that he spent half of last season on-loan at Sunderland.

But the winger must have impressed Neil Lennon in Celtic training. As a result he started in the 2-1 win over Sarajevo on Wednesday night.

It would not be a shock to see him start for the Hoops when they take on Nomme Kalju in the second round of qualifiers in a week’s time.

The resurgence of Morgan could give hope to other Celtic players who have looked out of the picture for long periods.

The likes of Jack Hendry and Calvin Miller should take heart from Morgan getting back into the Hoops side. At the moment it looks like neither player has much of a future at Celtic.

However, the same would have been said about Morgan a short time ago. Neil Lennon seems to be all about giving players a chance.

Therefore, the players who have not featured yet should look to impress the Hoops boss in training with their diligence and attitude.

If Morgan can salvage his Celtic career, so can the other squad players at the club. They just have to take their chance when they get it.
