The shortlist for the William Hill Men’s International Player of the Year for the Scotland national team has been announced and it is no surprise to see Celtic captain Callum McGregor among the nominees.

The 29 year old is up for the award alongside ex Hoops teammate Kieran Tierney, former Hibs man John McGinn and Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay.

The winner will be announced at the annual Scottish Football Writers Association dinner on the 28th of May as McGregor aims to get his hands on yet another deserved award.

For Steve Clarke’s side, the Celtic captain has played in every single competitive match since a 1-0 Nations League defeat away to Slovakia in November 2020, putting testament to his optimum consistency levels.

Moreover, the fact McGregor is up for the award alongside three Premier League players shows the extremely high level he is operating at.

John McGinn has won the award in each of the last three years; however McGregor will be aspiring to pip his Scotland teammate and take the acclaim which he thoroughly deserves.
