Glasgow Rangers and Celtic have both been linked with moves for Lewis Morgan, and it is not difficult to see why the Ibrox side and Hoops are keen.

Lewis Morgan provided yet another indication of why Rangers and Celtic both want to sign him after he provided a fantastic assist in Scotland's under-21 side's victory over their Latvia counterparts on Tuesday.

The Scots went into the contest with one win and one defeat from the opening two games of their European Championship qualifying campaign. And they needed little time to do the damage that would ensure that they wrapped up the three points in Liepaja with goals from Oliver Burke and Oliver McBurnie inside the first 20 minutes seeing the away side take a 2-0 lead that they would hold onto for the rest of the game.

It was Morgan however, who deserves much of the praise as he got the Scots off on their way as his sumptuous pass played in the West Brom summer signing for the opener.

The St Mirren man took an excellent touch some 35 yards out from goal to get away from his marker, before sliding a pinpoint pass into Burke's path seemingly without to lift his head up to see where the winger was.

The brilliant assist provided another indication about why the Old Firm are keen on bringing the 21-year-old in to their respective clubs.

The Daily Mail reported in September that the Gers and Hoops were keen on the midfielder who came through the ranks at Ibrox, and has now entered the final year of his contract with the Scottish Championship side.

And the assist in Latvia is just another indication of why he is so highly sought after - the Mail reported that Cardiff and Swansea were also taking a look at him.

Morgan has scored five and contributed two assists in the league for St Mirren this term, and a continuation of his current form for club and country would surely make it even harder for his current side to keep the likes of Rangers and Celtic at bay.
