Celtic midfielder rubbishes talk of a summer exit

Celtic midfielder Lewis Morgan has rubbished the ongoing speculation over his future. The 21-year-old only joined the Hoops from St Mirren in January but he was loaned back to the Paisley club for the second half of the season where they secured promotion to the top-flight. Since then, Morgan has surprisingly been linked with a reunion with manager Jack Ross at Sunderland but the midfielder has now dismissed the gossip.

He said: “The only thing in my head is going into Celtic pre-season, starting on Monday and impressing. I don’t have any eyes on any other club and why should I? It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world I’m at. I’m only focused on Celtic. I suppose you never really know with football, but the plan is for me to go in there in pre-season and try and really stake my own claim to get in the team.”

Kieran Tierney: Double treble will never be repeated

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney believes the double treble achieved by Celtic will never be repeated by any other Scottish club.

Speaking to reporters, Tierney was pleased with achievement and does not believe a similar achievement is possible in the future, he said: “I’m not sure because it’s very hard to win six cups domestically in a row. It’s never been done before and that’s because it’s very hard to keep the consistency over two years and we have managed to do that, so we have to enjoy that now. There was a lot of talk about it [the double treble] and there should be because it’s never been done and it’s so hard. The expectation has always been there at Celtic and this season and last we have dealt with it great.”
