Wayne Rooney handed Morrison a start against his old club in the 2-1 pre-season defeat.

And the midfielder's highlights reel, posted on his Instagram, showed a number of impressive touches that delighted his fellow pros.

Ian Wright, Derby's Colin Kazim-Richards, Andre Gray and Reece Oxford were among the famous faces showing their appreciation for Morrison in the comments section.

Wright posted a love heart emoji under the video while West Brom forward Callum Robinson commented: "Things you love to see⭐️😍."

Southampton's Nathan Redmond added: "Enjoyment👏🏽."

And Todd Kane of QPR posted: "Playing in the park geez."

Among Morrison's contributions were a number of times he showed for the ball and moved possession on, an instance of hassling Tahith Chong for possession, and a cute backheel pass in the final third.

The Telegraph claim that Derby will offer Morrison a contract after the Football League loosened the Championship side's transfer embargo.

The former United prospect is a free agent after leaving Dutch side ADO Den Haag in January, following short spells with Sheffield United and Middlesbrough.

Rams boss Rooney, 35, believes he can get the best out of Morrison, who was once touted as a supreme talent.

He said post-game: "Ravel had little flashes, moments.

"That was Ravel’s first game in a long time so you could see he was feeling it.

"Ravel’s a very nice lad, a bit misunderstood at times. But it’s my job to make sure I can get the best out of him, I’m confident I can do that.

"I have to manage him right and I have no worries about that."
