Celtic fans praise Callum McGregor after captain’s role

Celtic came from behind to move 12 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table on Sunday afternoon, meaning they are well on track for a ninth straight league title.

Neil Lennon’s side eased to a 3-1 victory against Kilmarnock after the visitors netted an early 6th-minute penalty.

Can McGregor be Scott Brown's replacement?





Goals from Kristoffer Ajer, Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths sealed all three points at Celtic Park.

But it was fill-in skipper for the afternoon Callum McGregor who received the bulk of the praise following his performance in the heart of the pitch in Scott Brown’s absence.

Here’s what has been said…

There were so many superlatives used to describe the 26-year-old’s showing, but “masterclass” and “outstanding” tend to sum it up best.

One supporter couldn’t put a price on the midfielder, labelling him as “priceless” whilst another claimed he was “different gravy” on the pitch.

A further member of the Hoops faithful even believed he would get into most teams in the world.

It has led to calls for him to become the future captain of Celtic with some seeing him as the perfect ready-made replacement for the current skipper.

“Captain in the making” and “captain material” were two phrases used to emphasise this point.

McGregor has played a whopping 46 times in all competitions, which would suggest he certainly has the legs and durability over the 34-year-old.
