New Celtic star aims to impress on home debut

LEWIS MORGAN is making an impressive start to his time at Celtic. He stood out in the pre-season games and came off the bench in Armenia on Tuesday to play his part in Celtic’s first competitive match of the season against Alashkert.

Tomorrow the Celtic supporters that aren’t on their holidays will get the chance to see the former St Mirren man for themselves when the 7 in a row Champions and Double Treble winners entertain Standard Liege at Celtic Park – the game has a 3pm kick off.

Morgan is looking forward to getting the chance to play at Paradise as a Celtic player.

“When it’s a friendly it’s important we’re all trying to impress, so it’s another game that I’m looking forward to.

“European teams like Standard Liege are usually involved in the Champions League as well so we know it’ll be a tough game. But we’ve got great players and it will maybe give some boys the opportunity to play,” Morgan stated.

“Obviously it’s all a new experience for me and whether it’s a friendly or a Champions League game, it’s all going to hopefully stand me in good stead.

“It’s another game I’m going to look forward to and hopefully another positive result that will take us into the Champions League qualifier next week.”

Looking back to the impressive 3-0 win on Tuesday, Morgan was well satisfied with the outcome.

“We knew it was going to be tough with the conditions. We knew it was going to be warm, but the result speaks for itself. It’s a great result. It was a long trip and to get the three away goals was massive.

“The confidence in the camp is quite high at the moment. It was a great result and sets us up quite nicely but we’re not going to get too ahead of ourselves. We know it’s important to see it through and then start focusing on anything else after that.”
