Lewis Morgan has struggled to force his way into the side at Celtic since his move from St. Mirren.

The winger has been linked with a move to Hibs this month but the Buddies should try bring him back to Paisley.

Morgan was a massive player for Jack Ross’ side and could make the difference under Oran Kearney as they battle relegation.

Oli Burke’s arrival at Celtic has only pushed Morgan further down the pecking order.

Morgan has made 13 appearances this season but 12 of those have come from the bench.

A short-term move to St. Mirren would give him a great chance to play regularly.

With his game-time at Celtic limited, he really needs more than brief cameos to continue his development.

There’s little question over Morgan’s ability but displacing the likes of James Forrest is proving to be too much for now.

Morgan scored 29 times and contibuted 23 assists in 118 appearances for the Buddies.

Whether Kearney sees a place for him at Saints is a different matter but he’d definitely improve his squad.

Celtic shouldn’t be too difficult to deal with as it is in their interests for him to be playing regularly too.

Brendan Rodgers is obviously a fan of his but even the Celtic boss will concede that he isn’t best served sitting on the sidelines.

There has been an exodus of players from St. Mirren this month as Kearney reshapes his squad.

Bringing Morgan back would be a massive step in the right direction.
