Callum McGregor hopes that he will be in the team for Celtic in next month’s game against their fierce rivals Rangers. He missed the last year semi-final game against Rangers and would want this time to be on the side.
McGregor told reporters that he is keen to participate in the big games and that games against Rangers are always special. He stated that his best memory as a ball boy was the goal scored by Thomas Gravesen in a game against Rangers. He is however determined to make his own memory on the pitch should he get a chance in the team for the next game.
The midfielder who was convicted of drunk driving recently missed several games as he waited for the court decision. During this time, he received full support from Ronny Deila, the Celtic manager. Callum McGregor wants to repay the faith placed in him by the manager by putting in some excellent performances during the remaining games of the season.
He stated that the support given by the manager was instrumental in helping him come out stronger of the problem he has been in. The manager encouraged him to work harder and to come back stronger in the team.
Callum McGregor has started the last three games for Celtic and will want to believe that his current form will allow him to feature in the big games against Rangers. He also stated that his future objective will be to get into the national team. He has already been selected several times by the Scotland coach but has yet to get his full cap.
He remain confident and believes that if he keeps on working and progressing, there is no reason why he will not get a chance against Rangers and also on the international scene.
