NewsLFC loan watch: Morton assists on Hull debut while Phillips makes Celtic bow
Tyler Morton provided an assist on his Hull City debut on Friday night.
The on-loan Liverpool midfielder came off the bench on the hour mark of the Tigers’ Championship clash with Coventry City and his superb cross teed up Aaron Connolly to glance home a late equaliser in their 1-1 draw.
There was also a debut for Nathaniel Phillips, who started Celtic’s 3-0 win over Dundee – for whom Owen Beck completed the 90 minutes – before being withdrawn at half-time.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said post-match: “I think with Nat it was precautionary. In the very last action he rolled his ankle a little bit and he could have played on but we decided to make sure.”
