NEW Celtic midfielder Lewis Morgan who was on the books at Ibrox as a youngster admitted the Govan side set him back a couple of years because they couldn’t see his potential.
Lewis has come from nowhere to be one of the hottest prospects in Scottish Football and confirmed his name on the big stage by signing for the champions on Friday.
Speaking honestly about his development as a youth player the new Celtic man spoke about his horrible time as an Ibrox trainee.
“It was probably more of a relief when I left there, to be honest, It was a weight off my shoulders because the last two years there were pretty much pointless me being there.
“The head of youth at the time put me back a year so I was playing with the younger age groups. Even at that, I was probably only playing 10 minutes here or there.
“He didn’t take a fancy to me at all. Going to a club like St Mirren was great for me. It gave me that chance to kick on again.
Lewis cannot wait to pull on the Hoops in the summer at the ‘biggest club’ and make up for lost time.
“I probably lost a couple of years at that club so I can’t wait to get start at this one, the biggest club.
Lewis has been loaned back out to St Mirren and will join up with Brendan Rodgers side at the end of June.
