LEWIS MORGAN firmly believes he can make an impact at Celtic by simply being himself.

The winger impressed sufficiently at St Mirren to earn his move to the Scottish champions as well as a Scotland call-up for the tour to Peru and Mexico, and he is all too aware that he faces a massive step up and a huge challenge to establish himself at Celtic.

But the one thing he is not going to do is play within himself or be crippled by the daunting task at hand, vowing to remain positive and continue to run at full-backs.

“Listen, I believe in myself and that I can make an impact at this level,” Morgan said.

“I’ve got great players around me that will help me bed in. “I need to go and show what I can do and prove why I’m here to the people who maybe don’t know why I was brought here.

“The reason I’ve been brought to the club is to be positive. I’ve just got to perform the way I did previously. That’s the reason I’m here and why the manager wanted me.

“I’ve got to improve but I’ll keep playing my style of play. “This is a massive club. You’ve got to respect that. But at the same time, I’ve got to be confident in my own ability that I can make an impact.”

Morgan made his Celtic debut in the first match of the pre-season training camp in Austria, playing the first half of the match against Vorwarts Steyr.

A minor knee problem then kept him out of action for the rest of the tour, but he returned to training before the squad headed for home on Wednesday night, and should be available for the Shamrock Rovers match in Dublin on Saturday.

Despite the slight injury, Morgan relished the trip away to embed himself within the Celtic squad and impress in training.

“It was good to wear the strip for the first time,” Morgan said. “It’s been a long time coming. I’ve been looking forward to it and it’s good to get a run out and improve my fitness.

“It’s been great. The training has been of a really high level. It’s about bedding myself in. “The gaffer has said that I just need to make an impact. Hopefully I can do so and prove that in the coming weeks.

“Without divulging too much about what he’s said to me, he sees me as an important player if I can really prove myself. “Over the coming weeks it will be up to me to prove why I should be in the team. He says he wants me to push on. “It’s pleasing to hear that.”
