Inter Miami CF Signs Winger Lewis Morgan from Celtic FC

Gifted attacker adds offensive threat to inaugural roster
 
Inter Miami CF announced today it has signed winger Lewis Morgan from prestigious Scottish Premier League side Celtic Football Club for an undisclosed transfer fee. The 23-year-old, who has also earned international experience with the Scottish national team, adds attacking threat to Inter Miami CF ahead of its historic inaugural Major League Soccer (MLS) season. Morgan will occupy an international roster slot and be added to the roster pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and P-1 Visa.
 
“Lewis is an exciting player that will contribute to our attack,” said Inter Miami CF Sporting Director Paul McDonough. “He is a pacey and dynamic player who operates well in space. He has shown his quality in Scotland and in England and we’re happy to acquire him."
 
Morgan joined Celtic in January 2018, making his debut later that year in a UEFA Champions League qualifying match against Alashkert Yerevan. He made 31 appearances for the club including seven in the Champions League and eight in the UEFA Europa League. He registered two Champions League assists and two Europa League goals for the team.
 
The 23-year-old also showed his versatility late in 2019, filling in as a striker for a number of important matches including the Scottish League Cup final, a silverware-winning 1-0 triumph for Celtic.
 
Morgan spent the second half of the 2018/19 season on loan at Sunderland AFC where he made 22 appearances. He tallied two goals and four assists for the club including a crucial goal that helped the team reach the EFL Trophy final.
 
The young wide player began his professional career at Saint Mirren Football Club in Scotland after years in the Rangers Football Club Academy. At St. Mirren, Morgan enjoyed a very productive spell, registering 18 goals and 13 assists across all competitions in the 2017/18 season. In total, he made 118 appearances for the club, totaling 29 goals and 23 assists.
 
Morgan has received two senior caps for Scotland, making his debut in a 2018 friendly against Peru. He made his second appearance for the national team a few days later, appearing in a friendly against Mexico.
 
Morgan has also featured for the Scottish U-21 team, appearing in nine matches. He registered two goals and two assists for the team.
 
Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami will play all of its home matches at Inter Miami CF Stadium in Fort Lauderdale starting with the first-ever match on Saturday, March 14 against the LA Galaxy. Located off Commercial Boulevard and I-95, the stadium stands adjacent to the Club’s new 50,000 square foot state of the art training facility, which includes seven professional fields.
