O’Neill may be able to create great link between Nottingham Forest and Celtic

O’Neill may be able to create great link between Nottingham Forest and Celtic

According to The Nottingham Post, Forest are in contention to sign Celtic winger Lewis Morgan on loan this month. 

The 22-year-old be was sensational last season with St Mirren, helping secure them promotion from the Scottish Championship with 14 goals and six assists in 35 appearances.

Morgan has struggled to make an impact so far for Celtic this season, however, and while he has featured under Brendan Rodgers, it has largely been from the bench and he is yet to score. However, at the age of 22, he is still in his formative years, and it would make sense if he joins up with with a team that would perhaps give him more playing time than what he has got so far this season. It will only help his development before returning to Parkhead.

With Matt Cash and Joe Lolley already at the City Ground, The Reds already have a good selection of attackers. However, the arrival of Morgan could see Lolley play more centrally, as he has done under new manager Martin O’Neill so far this season.

What this transfer does indicate, however, is a new relationship between Celtic and Nottingham Forest. O’Neill managed The Bhoys at the beginning of the century, where he had a huge amount of success. His relationship with the Glasgow club could mean that he could broker deals for their struggling players, which would be an amazing source of talent from Forest’s perspective. With a number of good players struggling for game time at Celtic Park at the moment, this could be the beginning of a great relationship.
