Celtic fans have been reacting to news coming out of the club surrounding Callum McGregor.

Following the departure of Scott Brown earlier this year, the club has been looking for someone to take the armband moving forward, and they have found it in the form of the 28-year-old midfielder, who was announced as the new skipper.

McGregor has so far made 325 appearances for the club, having come through the ranks at Parkhead and has stood in as captain on occasion before most notably last season, and speaking upon the announcement, head coach Ange Postecoglou stated: “He knows what it takes to be a successful Celtic player, and he knows what it means to captain this club, and I’m delighted that he will be wearing the armband and leading the squad going forward.”

Will Ange Postecoglou be a success at Celtic?





The news was posted on the club’s Twitter page for the fans to react to, where it was met with great excitement from the supporters:

“Least this confirms Calmac is staying at @CelticFC  & is much needed as he would a been a massive loss. Now Calmac be that ruthless captain and make sure the team gives all in every game”

“Delighted for him! Well deserved and hopeful he brings success back after a poor season, what would help him would be some senior professionals that are quality and ready to step onto the park?!”
“Great news! I was hoping he’d dawn the armband. Lead us to victory Captain! A new era begins.”
“One of the most underrated footballers of his generation, an absolute class act and thankfully, now our captain”
“Best. Tweet. Ever”
“The only choice”
“Makes sense and removes any doubt that he’s here for the foreseeable”
