Lewis Morgan was one of four players brought into Celtic’s starting line-up by Neil Lennon for last night’s Europa League clash against Rennes from the previous weekend’s win over Livingston, as per Sky Sports.
Morgan repaid his manager’s faith by scoring the opening goal in the Hoops’ 3-1 win, sweeping the ball to the Rennes net from James Forrest’s cross in the 21st minute, with @CelticFC on Twitter notifying followers of the goal.

Prior to the game, however, many Celtic fans on Twitter lamented his inclusion in the starting line-up, with the 23-year-old having also faced criticism from ex-Hoops player Jackie McNamara (as per Football Insider) and a number of Hoops supporters earlier in the season.
Following his goal against Rennes, these Celtic fans took to Twitter to gleefully hit back at Morgan’s detractors:
Where’s all the people moaning about Morgan now? 😉
