He has spoken of his close relationship with Brendan Rodgers in the past – now Jack Ross is being backed to emulate the Leicester City manager by Lewis Morgan.

The Hibs boss has spoken previously of the close relationship both he and Leicester City man Rodgers have, stemming from Ross’ days at Alloa Athletic. Rodgers is a ‘big influence’ according to Morgan’s former boss (Sunderland Echo), the Inter Miami star having worked with both.

Morgan was managed by the current Hibs manager while at St Mirren before moving to Rodgers’ Celtic and the winger can see traits of the Northern Irishman in Ross (Athletic): “There’s no denying that Jack’s the manager who got the best out of me. His training is brilliant, he’s a great man-manager.

“Obviously, I worked under Brendan Rodgers at Celtic, and you’re seeing him succeed so much at Leicester. There’s no reason Jack can’t emulate his success. Brendan has accomplished so much, and I’m not throwing Jack’s name there with him yet, but he is such a talented manager.

 “I keep in touch with [Jack] and always look out for Hibs’ score. He knows how to get the best out of players; in particular attacking players. Sometimes, as a manager, you don’t need to coach your forward-thinking players.”
