Injury expert 'confident' McGregor will play for Celtic tonight

Callum McGregor will be available to Ange Postecoglou for tonight’s clash between Celtic v Raith Rovers.

That is according to injury expert Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site and has a background in medicine as well as data analysis.

Celtic have been without their captain for their last two games against Real Betis and Livingston.

The Hoops missed their captain and lost both matches as Joe Hart took the armband.

Until his injury, McGregor had started every game under Ange Postecoglou.

Dinnery insists tonight’s game is an ideal opportunity for McGregor to get some minutes under his belt after only just missing out last weekend.

“He has been a big loss for Celtic over the last two games,” Dinnery told Football Insider‘s Adam Williams.

“Of course they have lost those two games as well. So seeing him back in the starting 11 would be good.

“It’s a good opportunity to get a bit of sharpness and fitness. Postecoglou said he was fairly confident McGregor would be available for the game.

“That’s great news for Celtic fans. It’s an opportunity for him to get some minutes in his legs ahead of this weekend’s game.

“I’m confident McGregor will be ready.”

Celtic face Dundee United at the weekend as they look to recover some of their previous good form in the league.

They then face Bayer Leverkusen in what could prove to be another tricky night in Europe.
