Celtic: Fans hit back at Lewis Morgan’s critics after his goal against Rennes

Celtic: Fans hit back at Lewis Morgan’s critics after his goal against Rennes - Celtic

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.

The 23-year-old left midfielder was making his first appearance of the group stage and started as the spearhead of attack with Odsonne Edouard rested.

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.

That was one of three shots on target that he had on the night, with BBC reporter Tom English describing his performance as “excellent”.

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:
