HIGHLY-RATED Scottish youngster Liam Morrison has resumed training with German giants Bayern Munich following six months on the sidelines. 

The 17-year-old saw his progress in Bavaria halted when he suffered an injury set-back in December.  

It was initially feared that he would not feature again this season. 

However, the former Celtic kid was on the grass with Bayern’s under-17 side on Monday morning after battling back to full fitness. 

Morrison tweeted: “After a long 6 months of injury, I’m finally back. No better feeling.”

Morrison, who was also on the books of Rangers as a schoolboy, joined Bayern last summer, snubbing the offer of a long-term contract at Parkhead. 

The towering teenager is coached by Germany legend Miroslav Klose and former Argentina internationalist Martin Demichelis in the Bayern youth ranks, while he is a regular for Scotland at under-17 level. 

Speaking last year, Morrison claimed his ultimate ambition is to become the best defender in the world

Reports suggest Morrison will soon be joined in Munich by another Celtic academy product, 16-year-old Barry Hepburn, while the reigning Bundesliga champions have also been credited with an interest in Hearts prodigy Aaron Hickey.
