There is an air of optimism at the Stadium of Light, and Morgan will find playing for the Black Cats more fulfilling, especially if Ross’s team gain automatic promotion from League One at the end of the season.

Moreover, Morgan worked with Ross at St. Mirren and developed well under the current Sunderland manager.

English football will be a new challenge for Morgan, one the Celtic winger should accept ahead of Hibernian.
