Supporters of Celtic have recently fumed after some comments from Scottish midfielder Callum McGregor were shared by the Hoops.

In the current round of Premiership fixtures, the Hoops host David Martindale’s Livingston at Celtic Park in a 3pm kick-off (per Transfermarkt).

When the two sides met earlier in the season, the Bhoys were able to claim a 3-2 victory with goals from Albian Ajeti, Ryan Christie and McGregor.

Ahead of the clash today, the midfielder spoke with the media and some of his comments were shared on Twitter by the club (per Celtic).

He said: “We know we have to win every game. Things can change quickly in football, we need to hold on to that belief and as a club look to move forward in the right way.”

After these comments were shared, lots of Celtic fans flocked to them to air various frustrations.
