What did Celtic fans make of the news about McGregor?
The report from Football Insider has suggested that McGregor is now seen as a dressing room leader and he is also an influential voice.
The report also suggests that Brendan Rodgers had wanted him at Leicester City in 2019 and 2020, but the the Hoops rejected any enquiries from the Foxes, even though Rodgers’ side were willing to pay a fee of around £20 million.
Some of these Celtic fans are glad that McGregor is worthy enough to be handed the club’s captaincy and they are hoping that the midfielder gets some sort of rest soon.
In the 2019/20 season, the Scotsman played as many as 52 games in all competitions and he featured for 4,686 minutes for the Bhoys.
