A lot of Celtic fans have called on the club to make some last-ditch signings after Lewis Morgan’s transfer to Inter Miami was confirmed this evening. The Hoops announced on their official website celticfc.net that the winger had completed his move to the Florida-based outfit, with the news also shared on Twitter via @CelticFC.
Morgan leaves Parkhead after making 31 appearances for the Scottish champions since first coming to the club two years ago and he managed just two goals in his time at Celtic, with the 23-year-old copping his share of criticism from a portion of Hoops fans and pundit Chris Sutton over some of his performances this season.
He is the second winger to be sold by the club this month after the departure of Scott Sinclair to Preston and Neil Lennon’s wide options are quite threadbare at the moment after Mikey Johnston suffered ligament damage in midweek that is likely to rule him out long-term (as per BBC), with Mohamed Elyounoussi also sidelined of late. Despite the reduction in wingers at the club, Lennon has been reluctant to turn to the likes of Marian Shved, who has played just 35 minutes of first team football this season.
These Celtic fans on Twitter called for action from the club after hearing of Morgan’s departure:
Do something. Anything

What do you make of Morgan’s departure from Celtic? Should they have let him leave given their shortage of wingers or are you glad to see the back of him? Share your views in the comments section below!
