Celtic face Livingston today at Celtic Park and three points will see the Bhoys move joint top of the SPFL table. Rangers will travel to Easter Road tomorrow to face an inform Hibs team and the Bhoys need to shift the pressure back onto the other half of Glasgow today with a good win.
Callum McGregor must be the easiest name for any Celtic manager to put on their team sheet. He clocks up sixty plus games a season for the last three years. The stop/start season Celtic have had to deal with this season won’t suit a player like Cal Mac and he spoke about relishing a run of games and getting some momentum as he features in today’s match programme.
“Now we just need a little bit of a run of games and a little bit of momentum. We had a wee blip at Kilmarnock last month but then had some good results against Dundee United and Motherwell before the international break. “
The midfield engine feels the champions are already shown signs of improvements as they look to hit peak form and bring some consistency into the mix too.
“After that, Ross County and St Mirren in midweek, those were two different performances, but six well-earned points. You can start to see the performances are getting a bit better, a bit slicker, we’ve scored five in the same game a couple of times this season already, which is always positive.”
Celtic are back to playing three games a week now and Callum McGregor is one of those players who is never rested such is his stamina and overall constant displays in the middle of the park.
