Celtic fans lavish praise on Callum McGregor for his performance vs Hearts

Celtic fans on Twitter were ecstatic after their 5-0 win over league-leaders Hearts brought them to within one point of the Edinburgh club at the top of the table, and huge praise was reserved for midfielder Callum McGregor.

The versatile midfielder started alongside Ryan Christie in one of the two holding roles for Brendan Rodgers’ side, and picked up his fourth assist of the season so far for Filip Benkovic’s header.

The win was effectively sealed for Celtic before half-time as French striker Odsonne Edouard netted either side of the Benkovic goal – his first goal for the club.

In the second-half, James Forrest smashed in a fourth before Christie made it five from the penalty spot with just a minute of normal time remaining.

Celtic looked back to their dominant selves after a poor start to the season that has seen them playing catch up in the league and their Europa League group.

The form of 25-year-old McGregor though has clearly helped with the turnaround and fans of the Hoops on Twitter made it clear how valued he was. Check out the best of the reaction to his performance below.
