The must-see clip of Callum McGregor living up to his Celtic captain duties
Callum McGregor looks to have been an inspired choice of Celtic captain.
Let’s be honest, it was never in much doubt after the departure of Scott Brown.
However, Ange Postecoglou still had to commit to the idea. And McGregor still had to show the qualities we’ve come to expect of a Celtic leader.
So far he’s living up to the billing. He’s been one of our top performers over the last few matches, not just with his ability on the ball, but also the intangibles that mark him out as a first-choice pick in the heart of the midfield.
A clip of his pre-match team talk in the huddle is going viral today after the club made it available via their Giphy account.
The footage shows McGregor motivating his teammates just prior to kick-off, as we’ve seen from Scott Brown over the last decade.
So far it’s been viewed over 75,000 times, as supporters at the game who may have missed the moment catch up.
We hope to see much more of this from McGregor over the coming months. If Celtic are to find trophy success this season, he will be a crucial part of it.
Fans are loving McGregor’s progress, taking to social media today to share their thoughts on his role as captain…
I’ll admit… I had my reservations on Callum McGregor as captain. Couldn’t have been more wrong. He’s thriving in the role, and playing brilliantly 💚🙌 https://t.co/Gf3TLulsPI— Ashleigh (@AshleighMeikle) August 13, 2021

I’ll tell you what I had my doubts wether he was captain material but he’s taking to it like a duck to water 💚 https://t.co/U9IAyNp764— Robert Stephen (@RobertStephen27) August 13, 2021
McGregor has stepped up even more than any of us could have predicted and he's done it rapidly too. Replacing Brown as captain was a really tough thing to do but Calum McGregor has stepped up beautifully 👏🍀 https://t.co/BIKUEsA2z7— Paul McGinley (@PaulMcG1994) August 13, 2021
