The midfield stalwart looked bereft of confidence and had little in the way of optimism following another bleak draw at home.
McGregor hinted that the Bhoys were tactically under-prepared, with loose passes allowing Livingston to threaten. Up front, there wasn’t much joy, with Tom Rogic starting on his own up front.
The Celtic man said:
“Not good enough. Took far too long to get going in the first half, put ourselves under pressure. [We] didn’t really understand the game in terms of build-up, we put ourselves under pressure giving them territory. That’s what they want.
“They felt good about themselves, they’ve won a lot of games recently. They understand the game, they run forward, they use their presence, they run off the ball, and that’s all the basics of the game.
“We have to turn them, start getting a bit of territory. We see at times that when you get bits of play through them, you get chances. So yeah, disappointing.”
Celtic fans react to Callum McGregor and disappointing result
Celtic fans made their voices heard in response to Callum McGregor’s post-match interview.
Clearly, there’s a lot of upset in the support currently, and social media made that very clear.
The sadness and embarrassment in the boy’s eyes…and to think of the lucrative offers he’s probably turned down to stay at the club… for this wholly undignified spectacle.

Honestly the same guff different game. Why the club no making changes now for next season. Get a new manager in now and start to build for next season. This is brutal but some action will give us hope.

C’mon CFC get the act together. If ever there is a need for effective leadership it’s now, this evening, tomorrow. Tell your support what the Club’s plan is to put this season behind us and where we’re doing to rebuild.
