Celtic boss Neil Lennon is coming under increasing pressure at Parkhead.

Chris Sutton has claimed during Early Kick Off, which was broadcast on BT Sport on 17th August, that it is depressing that Lewis Morgan is being given game time by Celtic.

Celtic were knocked out of the Champions League in humiliating circumstances in midweek, as they lost at home to Cluj.


Neil Lennon, in his desperation, called upon Morgan to try and make the impact required to stop Celtic from crashing out of the competition.


And Sutton thinks that the fact that Morgan is getting played for Celtic shows how limited the options at Parkhead are.

“It’s depressing," he fumed. "Second half, they bring Lewis Morgan on off the bench. He couldn’t get a game at Sunderland. That’s the sort of level Celtic are at.”

Lennon has been keen to give Morgan a chance at Celtic as he had an impressive pre-season, but there are still serious doubts over the attacker’s quality.

Morgan was once again used as a substitute for Celtic yesterday, but Lennon’s side failed to impress again.

The Bhoys only narrowly beat Dunfermline in extra-time, with frustrations growing among supporters in attendance at Parkhead.
