Celtic’s 2-0 victory over St Mirren on Wednesday night was by and large a grim affair. The Hoops played reasonably well in the first-half, but the second-half was a slog.
However, the Bhoys managed to pick up the three points which sent them even closer to the league title.
As for the performances of the players, no one really stood out, with the exception of one man – Callum McGregor.
Laid chances on a plate
He turned in a superb midfield performance. His range of passing was top-notch. He laid chances on a plate for the Hoops attackers who mostly fluffed their lines in front of goal.
With Scott Brown possibly facing a suspension for an incident in the game, McGregor will become even more important to the Hoops in the weeks to come.
Player of the year worthy performance
His performance against St Mirren showed how influential he can be. It might be a bit late, but the performance was worthy of a player who should be nominated for player of the year.
McGregor turned in a display that few in Scottish football could match, and he should be recognised by his peers.
Neil Lennon made some changes for the St Mirren match but it was notable that McGregor kept his place in the team.
Perhaps once the title is clinched, the player can be given a few weeks’ break. For now though, he looks to be the main man for the Hoops in the bid to clinch the treble.
