Celtic midfielder, Callum McGregor has urged the Celtic support to stick by the team, trust the management and keep the faith, after yesterday’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to bitter rivals Rangers.
As reported by the Sun, McGregor spoke on the frustrations of the fans because of the performance that the squad of players put in which was abysmal. But he reminded the support that we have to bounce back from this and we should be capable of that.
“I’m disappointed right now and there’s no getting away from that.
“It’s a game we’ve lost at home to our biggest rivals and we can’t hide away from that. We know how bad a result it is.
“The fans will be frustrated. They have every right to point fingers and we have to accept that because in these games the bigger picture is never seen.
“We have to keep the faith, trust the team and trust the manager and what we’re doing. We have been here a load of times before and have a load of experience. We are by no means out of it.”
The performance in the game wasn’t acceptable and in all honesty, a lot of us see it coming after some of the games this season which have had a similar level of performance.
In the past, the likes of McGregor have bounced back impressively from these sort of results, so they deserve some time to try and bounce back from that but it needs to happen quickly.
We have a tough run of games coming up and needs need to improve if we want to try and get good results from these games in the league, the Scottish Cup and Europa League. If they don’t, we really could be in serious trouble
