Celtic winger Lewis Morgan has told The Scottish Sun that he has been in touch with his former St. Mirren and Sunderland manager Jack Ross following his appointment as the Hibernian boss.
Morgan worked with Ross at Scottish club St. Mirren, as well as during his loan spell at Sunderland in League One in England.
The 23-year-old winger, who is struggling for playing time at Celtic at the moment, has said that he has been in touch with Ross.
However, the Scotland international has made it clear that he has not been approached to join Hibernian on loan in the January transfer window.
Morgan told The Scottish Sun: “I texted the manager to congratulate him. It’s a great appointment for Hibs.
“I have worked with him before and know him really well. He’s a top manager and excellent coach. I’m sure he will be a success there.”
Morgan added: “I know people have mentioned it but he hasn’t! I just texted him to wish him well. He replied but that was it. I’m just concentrating on working hard at Celtic.”
Succeeding at Celtic
Morgan is a very good and talented young winger who can and will get better in the coming years.
True, the Scotsman has failed to make himself an important figure in manager Neil Lennon’s team, but he has got what it takes to become a success at the Hoops.
