Loads of Celtic fans have been running the rule over their fantastic recent form, and they’re full of praise for Callum McGregor.
Celtic fans have always felt that McGregor could be one of their finest talents if played in the right position and system, and he was absolutely sensational on Thursday.
The Bhoys won 2-1 against Red Bull Leipzig to keep their European hopes alive, and the midfield duo of Ryan Christie and McGregor was utterly dominant.

The pair were fantastic at breaking up play and denying Leipzig from really putting their stamp on the game, but both players were great on the ball as well.
Christie set up the winning goal, while McGregor dictated the game against a really strong Leipzig midfield.
The 25 year-old, who has racked up over 120 league appearances for the club, is starting to look more and more like Scott Brown’s successor, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Callum McGregor’s performance against Leipzig tonight is genuinely better than anything Barry Ferguson ever did in his entire career

Think he’s the best player in the country. Ferguson was decent but overhyped; brother Derek was a better player.

He’s excellent mate and works equally as hard off the ball as on it .
