Morgan has found it difficult to make the breakthrough at Celtic this season.

He has made only 13 appearances so far.

However, a loan move does not necessarily mean the end of his Celtic career.

He only has to look at the example of Ryan Christie for that.

Christie spent 18 months on loan at Aberdeen, and it seemed his career was over at Celtic Park.

However, injuries meant that he found his way into the Hoops’ first-team, and he has taken his chance in style.

He has become one of the most important players in the first-team, scoring 8 goals so far this season.

Christie also commited his future to the club by signing a long-term contract.

With Christie showing how it is done, Morgan should now that he still has a chance to make it at Celtic.

Naturally it will be good for him to get some playing time at Sunderland.

If he stands out at the Stadium of Light it will give him plenty of confidence for next season.

Brendan Rodgers will no doubt be waatching Morgan’s progress closely.
