Celtic: Fans complain about Lewis Morgan after his goal against AIK

Celtic qualified for the group stage of the Europa League in emphatic fashion with a 4-1 win away to AIK last night, sealing a 6-1 aggregate triumph against the Swedish champions.

The Hoops’ comprehensive victory was rounded off on the stroke of stoppage time by Lewis Morgan, with the club’s official Twitter channel @CelticFC excitedly notifying followers of the goal when it was scored.

The 22-year-old, who came on as a 70th-minute substitute for Mikey Johnston, coolly dispatched a close-range header to the AIK net from James Forrest’s intricate cross to the back post to put the finishing touch to Celtic’s victory. [via BBC]

That was Morgan’s first goal for the club in his 23rd appearance, 10 of which have come this season after a loan spell at Sunderland in the second half of the 2018/19 campaign.

The winger had faced criticism recently from ex-Celtic player Jackie McNamara, who said of his substitute appearance in the Champions League defeat to CFR Cluj: “I think he’s given them a chance already to be honest. He gave a chance to Morgan there and I don’t think he did a lot when he came on.” [via Football Insider]

These Celtic fans on Twitter also seemed unimpressed with Morgan despite his goal last night:
