Morgan started well, scoring a late winner against Madrid on his first home appearance for the Hatters. This goal earned Morgan the club's Goal of the Season award. Despite this, Morgan proved an unpopular face at Kenilworth Road following rumors of an altercation with club captain Kevin Nicholls and displays of petulance on pitch leading some fans to feel his had a poor attitude.

On 7 March 2008 Morgan signed for Crewe Alexandra on loan for the rest of the season, where he scored once against Gillingham.
