Blues are set to open talks with Morrison over a contract extension at St Andrews.
Bruce admits he has let Morrison down by leaving him out of the starting line-up, but he is hopeful he will decide to stay at the club.
"I still want him to sign a new contract, and I've made it clear I want him to stay," said Bruce.
"Sometimes I have let Clinton down because he's done more than most in the last couple of years, but I hope he understands the situation.
"I feel harsh on Clinton because in December he has played as well as he has ever done since he's been at the club.
"Of course he is not happy but if anyone doesn't play and is happy, then something is wrong. Everyone wants to play in the Premier League.
"I've made it clear I want him to be part of what we do."
