International fans have taken to Twitter in order to criticise the performance of Celtic midfielder, Callum McGregor, in Scotland’s recent World Cup qualifying match.
So far this season, McGregor has impressed over his 33 Scottish Premiership appearances for Celtic, with the midfielder scoring three goals and registering seven assists, as well as making an average of one interception, 0.9 tackles and 1.6 key passes per game, culminating in an average SofaScore match rating of 7.14 – ranking him as the Bhoys’ seventh-best performer in the Scottish top flight.
Seemingly as a result of his fine league form, Steve Clarke opted to start the £20,000-per-week 27-year-old in Scotland’s World Cup qualifying fixture against Israel on Sunday evening, however, it would appear that the midfielder’s performance in the fixture did not best please many Scotland fans, a great number of whom took to Twitter to share their thoughts on McGregor’s display.
Do you think McGregor was poor against Israel?
So, what exactly did these Scotland fans have to say in reaction to Callum McGregor’s performance against Israel?
“McGregor couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat. Terrible tonight. Lost count of the number of times he has given it away.”
“Callum McGregor is actually the most overrated player in this team. The guy is actually terrible.”
“Goalie?? Tried a dive for the cameras there. Terrible. Wee McGregor isn’t international class.”
“The midfield is a mess. McGregor looks like a shadow of his former self.”
“If Callum McGregor has to be picked it has got to be further forward. Not a good enough holder at this level for me.”
“McGregor contributes nothing in a Scotland shirt.”
“McGregor is honking.”
“McGregor is a complete waste of space for Scotland. Every single time.”
All in all, it would seem as if these international fans were far from happy with the performance of McGregor against Israel, however, considering the fact that the 27-year-old’s SofaScore match rating of 7.5 ranked him as Scotland’s second-best player in the fixture, perhaps it could be argued that their comments are slightly harsh on the Celtic man.
