The Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern were left relatively frustrated by their draw with Hibernian over the course of the weekend, though do understand the fact it came after a busy week.
Indeed, the Bhoys in the bar have watched their side beat rivals Rangers AND finally win in the Champions League again, putting Anderlecht to the sword in a 0-3 away win over in Belgium. So, despite dropping points on Saturday, it’s been a productive week for the Hoops.
Particularly for Callum McGregor. The midfielder was, AT LAST, called up to the Scottish national squad after injuries to Scott Brown, Stuart Armstrong and Matt Ritchie, ahead of the Tartan Army’s clashes with Slovenia and Slovakia in World Cup qualifiers.
It’s been a long time coming for the 24-year-old, who has impressed in green and white for the best part of a year now and the punters propping up our bar are absolutely delighted to see him finally handed a chance to impress on the international stage.
Still, speaking to the Glasgow Evening Times, McGregor has revealed his main focus remains on Celtic, who face Bayern Munich in the Champions League not long after the international break.
“All I have ever tried to do is keep progressing and keep learning at Celtic,” he said.
“I have tried to make an impact whenever I have been in the team.
“I was pleased with the goals against Hibs but obviously I would have preferred it if they had come in a game when we had taken all three points.
“But for now it is just about trying to learn all the time.”
This could be the start of something special for McGregor. We’ve seen just how much of an impact Stuart Armstrong had on the Tartan Army after his time in the proverbial international wilderness and few would doubt McGregor’s ability.
