‘He has fabulous natural ability,’ Gordon’s praise for extra special team-mate

CALLUM McGREGOR doesn’t get the praise that he is due. So says Craig Gordon who admitted that he’d have had no chance himself of stopping the opening goal on Saturday. It was simply stunning. McGregor of course scored for Celtic in all competitions this season just ended, including the Champions League and the Europa League. He also scored in the Scottish Cup semi final and again on Saturday in the final.

“I don’t think Callum gets anywhere near the credit he is due.. I reckon he is one of those players people take a little bit for granted and that has been the case for a while now – but not in our dressing room,” the goalie said.

“He is a massive part of this team and he has really added another dimension to us in the middle of the park.

“Callum has scored a fabulous amount of goals and big goals, too, this season. He really adds to our threat going forward and I thought he showed great technique on Saturday – it really is a tremendous goal.

“There aren’t too many goalkeepers who would have been saving that one, that’s for sure.

“But that is what he brings. He has fabulous natural ability, but he works hard and I think he has just gone up to another level this season.”
