Three Towns football star Liam Morrison has earned rave reviews for his most recent outing with Wigan Athletic.

The English League One side faced off against Premier League giants Manchester United in the third round of the FA Cup on Monday, January 8.

While the Latics succumbed to a 2-0 defeat on the night, thanks to goals from Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes, the performance of Saltcoats boy Morrison certainly turned some heads.

The 20-year-old started at centre back for Shaun Maloney's side, making his 20th appearance on loan from Bayern Munich's reserve side.

The former Celtic kid coped impressively with United's array of attacking talent including £60m striker Rasmus Højlund and Marcus Rashford.

One fan commented after the game that Morrison "still has Rashford in his pocket" after the match.

Another lauded the excellent performance and commented that Morrison has the potential to become a "gargantuan name world football one day."

Fans commented that he "didn't put a foot wrong" during the match, with the future certainly looking bright for the latest talent looking to make a name for himself after coming out of North Ayrshire.
