Callum McGregor continued his recent run of good form for Celtic against Bayern Munich last night.
The midfielder, who has the habit of scoring in big games – including twice against Rangers last season – was at it again last night.
McGregor ran onto a great pass from James Forrest to fire the ball through Sven Ulreich’s legs to give Celtic a well-deserved, but short-lived equaliser.
McGregor’s goal and all-round performance met with plenty of praise on Twitter from Celtic fans.

A year on from the miss against Gladbach, Callum McGregor didn’t make the same mistake and buried it. Come a long way in 12 months.

The last year has been the best of McGregor’s career, as he has established himself in the Celtic first team, and recently made his long awaited debut for Scotland.
Last night was the first game that McGregor has started for Celtic in the Champions League this season, and his performance showed that he should be a first pick in midfield from now on.
McGregor and Celtic have yet another busy month ahead, with the most prominent games the Champions trip to Paris and the Betfred Cup Final against Motherwell.
The Champions League campaign ends at Celtic Park against Anderlecht in December.
This Saturday McGregor could be part of a Celtic team which will make history if they avoid defeat against St Johnstone.
