McGregor is insistent that he’ll let others do the talking about the match itself, but did speak about Postecoglou’s start at the club.

He told Sky Sports: “We are not thinking about what was said in the summer, what has been said now. We will let everyone else talk about the [Rangers] game.

“Our focus is building something special here, the manager speaks about it every day.

“We just want to get better. We try and make the supporters proud of what we are doing. We know that we have still got levels to go.”

McGregor has also been speaking about the current winning run that the Bhoys are on. Celtic have won the last six fixtures in all competitions, setting them up nicely for a huge week.

The midfielder told Sky Sports: “I am not sure surprised is the right word, but it has obviously settled down very, very quickly in terms of the manager getting his ideas across to the players and the players actually carrying it out.

“It has probably been sped up in that sense but there was always belief certainly within the dressing room and within the building that we could things going pretty quickly.”

This week is going to tell us a lot about where this group of players actually are in terms of competing for silverware this season. The matches against AZ and Rangers could really go either way.

What we do know is that Ange has us on the right path. He has not only the supporters believing something special is being built, but clearly the players too.
