When it comes to the Celtic midfield, the likes of Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong have been venerated celebrated for their achievements in the last few years at the club.
However, one player who is relatively unheralded when it comes to accolades and praise is one who is a ‘Mr. Consistent’ for the Hoops and a player who makes them tick – Callum McGregor.
The 24-year-old has been a mainstay for the Hoops under the management of Brendan Rodgers, making 45 appearances so far this season and chipping in with eight goals and eight assists, a good tally for a box to box midfield player.
The Hoops boss trusts McGregor which is why he usually picks him for the team even when he makes changes to the side – for example, in the game against Ross County on Saturday, Olivier Ntcham missed out despite a run of good performances but the very consistent McGregor kept his place in the team.
McGregor is the type of player that every manager loves to have in their team, he just gets on with his game without any thrills and is effective in the job he can do as well.
McGregor’s form has been recognised with his first Scotland cap earlier this season, and if he continues to thrive in Glasgow he will receive many more caps in the years to come.
