Celtic: Keith Downie raves over Callum McGregor’s display

Image for Celtic: Keith Downie raves over Callum McGregor’s display

Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie was left rather impressed by Celtic star Callum McGregor’s performance on the international stage for Scotland against the Republic of Ireland.

Scotland fell behind to a first-half goal from John Egan, but managed to turn things around in the second half as two goals from two former Celtic players in the form of Jack Hendry and Ryan Christie did the job.

But, it was a current Celtic player who caught the eye of Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie, as he took to Twitter to praise the performance of Callum McGregor.

He wrote:

So far this season, McGregor has a pretty respectable return for Celtic as he currently averages 1.1 shots per game, 1.4 key passes per game, 91.7% pass success rate, 71.9 passes per game, 1 clearance and 1 tackle per game (WhoScored).

Therefore, with a respectable start domestically and his form picking up on the international stage, things are looking very positive for Celtic if he can keep things up with a two point gap currently over Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.
