The Celtic captain took the armband from Scott Brown this season after the midfielder departed for Aberdeen and took part in a pre-match press conference ahead of the club’s Europa League qualifying second-leg match against FK Jablonec.
Are you confident Celtic will beat Jablonec?
McGregor spoke about what he expects from his players and said (as per Jo Hendry): “We have a responsibility to the supporters, to this club, to the badge, that every time we set foot on that pitch we give everything. That’s what I want from the players.”
The midfielder clearly takes being captain very seriously and knows what it means to give your all for the club and the fans.
Many fans appear to be delighted on Twitter following McGregor’s comments.
What have these Celtic fans had to say?
“He was born to be the Celtic captain!”
“Spot on Callum, get them telt”
“I said it last week but this guy has very quickly moulded into a very good captain. This is the type of stuff we want to hear.”
“Exactly what you want your captain to be saying. Beautiful stuff”
McGregor came through Celtic’s academy system and made his league debut back in 2014 against St Johnstone and has never looked back since then playing in every competition possible to Celtic, including in the Champions League against Barcelona.
