As reported by the BBC, Celtic are on the brink of signing St Mirren winger Lewis Morgan for a fee of around £300,000.
The Scotland U21 international has been in magnificent form this season, helping the Buddies’ promotion push with six goals and five assists in the Scottish Championship. The BBC say he will likely be loaned back to his current club for the remainder of the 2017/18 season.
Seen as one of the brightest young Scottish talents around right now, he’ll now have the chance to improve his skills even further under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers.
While Celtic supporters are pretty happy with the signing, Rangers fans are annoyed their club didn’t attempt to make a move to bring the winger to Ibrox.
Lewis Morgan was once on the books at the Light Blues and was released as a teenager, having been a supporter of the Ibrox club as a youngster. Fans feel such a talent should not have slipped through Rangers’ fingers.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
So we have players like Dalcio and Nemane on loan and don’t even try to get a young Scottish player, who is getting a lot of plaudits, like Lewis Morgan. Oh BTW who we released when he was about 17!

Players like Lewis Morgan are the players we should be looking to snap up as soon as they are available no matter the cost (which isn’t much at all) also the boy Hendry from Dundee should be a priority but we will miss out on him too. Pish.

Lewis Morgan the latest released by Rangers and going on to be snapped up by the dirty blighters. The board are an absolute shambles.

There is Lewis Morgan, 300k and bluenose, young and talented and we haven't moved for him. Our Dof is a joke, the board are an absolute disgrace. 2 months for a manager, being cheap bastards trying to sign an average manager in McInnes when we need better. Fans are turning. Joke!

Don’t understand Lewis Morgan’s thinking if he goes to Celtic, would hardly get game time for ages, can see it being another Ryan Christie/Scott Allan situation. I mean I could be bias as I want him at Rangers 🇬🇧

It makes you furious. Just look at Ross Mccrorie. There’s gems in there. We shouldn’t be going to other clubs to loan their youth! What’s happened to Liam Burt, Jordon Thompson players like that who have all impressed when coming in?

See another young Scottish Football talent going to them for pennies without us even putting up a fight & wat makes it worse is he is supposedly a Rangers man. The club is a pathetic mess at the moment going from one embarrassment to another.

Morgan going to them is really annoying me, Rangers fan as a lad. More alarm bells for me with WDF is going on in there @RangersFC

Rangers need to get their act together. That's Morgan and Moult gone who, if my FM save is anything to go by, would have been great signings for next to nothing.
Tony Pulis better have something up his sleeve come January 1st!
