Aberdeen Boss Derek McInnes refused to comment on the overnight reports the club were in talks to land Celtic youngster Lewis Morgan on loan for the rest of the season.
Brendan Rodgers is keen to see the midfielder go for the rest of the season and get some much needed first team football so he can keep developing.
Hibernian have been in the mix all window but it has now emerged Aberdeen may try and bring the player in like they did with Ryan Christie previously. However, McInnes refused to be drawn into any speculation, insisting all he was doing was ‘keeping his ear to the ground’.
💬 Derek – We have lots of conversations with managers and I’ve no comment to make regarding Lewis Morgan. It’s my job to keep my ear to the ground.

Speaking yesterday, Brendan Rodgers was clear he wants to see Lewis go out and confirmed there were more than one interested party in his player. The Celtic manager said it would be down to the player himself and his reps to sort out what’s best for them in the coming months.
If Morgan did make the switch he could reap the benefits of the deal, much like Ryan Christie has. The midfielder spent 18-months in Aberdeen and came back to make a name for himself this season.
