Lewis Morgan is yet to feature for Celtic.
The midfielder was allowed to return to St Mirren after signing for Celtic in January to help the Buddies win the title and secure promotion to the SPFL – an achievement made possible with Morgan’s contribution.
However, without even playing a single game for Celtic yet he has already caught the attention of English club Sunderland where he reportedly wants to move to, to reunite with former boss Jack Ross who left the Paisley club last month.
Reports down south claim Ross wants Morgan on-loan for the season as he looks to propel the Black Cats towards promotion to the Championship but the Celtic midfielder is having none of that.
“The only thing in my head is going into Celtic pre-season, starting on Monday and impressing,” Morgan stated.
“I don’t have any eyes on any other club and why should I? It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world I’m at. I’m only focused on Celtic.
“I suppose you never really know with football, but the plan is for me to go in there in pre-season and try and really stake my own claim to get in the team.
“I know that’s going to be hard and I’ve said many times that you’ve got to respect the players that are there. I’m going in to try and prove why I’m there and how I can get into that Celtic XI.”
