In arguably the only decent news to come out of Celtic Park this week, captain Callum McGregor has signed a new contract at Paradise which will take him to the summer of 2026, should he see out his deal.
Taking up on the captain role since Scott Brown moved to Aberdeen, McGregor has been exemplary in the centre of the park – notching important goals, having the stamina of a Duracell bunny from box-to-box and most importantly giving other players the platform to do well.
The news was met with extreme glee from the majority of the Celtic support, if not all of the Celtic support – Cal Mac has fit perfectly into how Ange Postecoglou wants him to play, how he wants him to lead and how he wants him to conduct himself. Essentially, he has become the figurehead of the club.
And Celtic fans sounded out their appreciation for the captain with a banner in the 1-1 draw against Dundee United on Sunday afternoon.
A banner read: ‘Callum McGregor, committed to the cause’ after the captain signed a new five-year-deal at Paradise earlier in the week.
