    That's the criticism I had of him before we signed him. When they played Aberdeen in the cup, he got knocked off the ball far too easy. Not going to write him off yet though as he has shown in glimpses that he's a decent enough player. He's quite limited in terms of pace and skill, which you really need one of as a winger, which is a concern.

    The pace thing is odd, before we signed him all the pundits that were talking about him in the media were saying he was a flying machine. I don't know if he had an injury that has taken the edge off that or they were just talkng pish as usual. If it's the former hopefully he can get back to where he was before.

    He can't be a winger whenever he ends up. Has to be a 10..

    With Rogic and likely Shved. He's no chance of that here at any point. Wouldn't surprise me if we signed another 10 either..

    Have you seen the centre halves in the Scottish Championship?

    Chronically slow..

    I can't say I watch much, well any really, of the championship so no I haven't. I don't watch much football that doesn't involve us these days.

    Ineffective so far.

    Showed one bit of skill to beat a man and then picked out a punter in the crowd.

    Isn’t quick enough to be a winger imo.

    Not sure what’s happened to his pace, looked pacey for St.Mirren and the few appearances he had for us he didn’t look as slow as he does now. Might be better as an attacking mid since he’s strong on both feet, a lot to improve on but.

    He’s no Celtic standard. Another Rodgers signing that was way off the mark. By the day it becomes clearer how ineffective BR was in the transfer market

    It’s a shame because there was excitement when this boy signed, a left sided winger with pace.

    * knows what’s happened? Well I hope Sunderland go up and they want him permanently, fingers crossed we get back what we paid for him.

    If they want him then they will pay more than 1.5m. But I think Sunderland will sign better players in an attempt to promote. However I think he will be loaned out again next season.

    Another one where we sign half decent Scottish players to stop them playing for other Scottish teams but they are not Celtic class .

    Lewis Morgan aims to make himself a first-pick in Neil Lennon’s new-look Celtic side.

    The winger spent the second half of last season on loan but will return to Parkhead this summer looking to push himself firmly back into the fold.

    The 22-year-old impressed in pre-season but then suffered an injury which derailed his campaign but now with a new manager in place he feels ready to make his mark.

    Morgan revealed: “He (Neil Lennon) gave my agent a ring and spoke to him.

    “It has been quite a quick turnover for him and I am sure he has been busy.

    “The club have done really well, getting the treble Treble which is obviously unprecedented, so I am looking forward to going back in and working with him.

    The aim is to play, it always has to be the aim. Being part of things week in and week out is what you want to do.

    If you can get into that Celtic team then hopefully you can be part of things with Scotland as well.”

    The biggest challenge for the St Mirren star will be competition. Jonny Hayes, James Forrest, new boy Maryan Shved, Mikey Johnston, Scott Sinclair and Daniel Arzani are all pushing for starts.

    Morgan acknowledged: “Of course there is big competition. I knew when signing for the club that it was going to be like that.

    “But I am looking at it in the way that it helps everyone improve if we are fighting over two spots.

    “You always need to be at your best. If that helps push me on then it can only be a good thing.

    “I still back myself. I was obviously disappointed with the game time and how it went, but I went out, got games and now I’m looking forward to going back

    The former Sunderland loanee can take inspiration from other young Hoops, like Callum McGregor, Kris Ajer and Ryan Christie who have all forced their way into the Celtic team after successful loans.

    He said: “Of course. Callum McGregor did as well, so did Kris Ajer.

    “They went out and improved by playing week in and week out and getting games in their legs. Then they went back and really pushed for the team.

    That’s what I am aiming to do now. I didn’t want to do it this way. I wanted to go and play straight away.

    “But I had a great six months down the road and I am excited to come back up.”

    Won't make it here, but if the choice is giving him a chance or signing brandon barker then i'd rather give him a shot

    He's going to have to hit the ground running when he comes back in, if he gets some gametime in any of the Scotland games it will show Clarke rates him and boost his confidence, hopefully the competition will kick him on.
