Callum McGregor: This is the big reason why Celtic have been successful
Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor has admitted that he and his team-mates are targeting the upcoming league fixture against Hearts as a chance to gain a bit of revenge on the Edinburgh side.
Hearts ended the Hoops’ British record run of 69 domestic matches without defeat when they cruised to a 4-0 victory over Brendan Rodgers’ league leaders.
With the sides set to meet again at Celtic Park on the 30th of January, McGregor is hopeful that the Hoops can set the record straight in their next match against Hearts.
“The big reason we have been successful is that we just looked at game after game,” he said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“But we’ll look at that fixture and hope we can bounce back from the one in December.”
The Scotland international returned to action after the winter break as he provided two assists in the Bhoys’ comfortable 5-0 victory over Brechin in the Scottish Cup.
The Bhoys cruised into a last sixteen encounter with Partick Thistle in February thanks to goals from Forrest, Sinclair, Ntcham, Boyata and Edouard.
There’s no let-up for the Hoops though as they return to action on Tuesday night with a league match against Partick Thistle at Firhill.
The Bhoys will be looking to maintain their eight point lead over second placed Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
The Celts won their first visit to Firhill of the season back in August 1-0 thanks to a goal by Olivier Ntcham.
