NEIL LENNON has commented on Callum McGregor and his injury after the Scotland International was called up by Alex McLeish for their Euro qualifiers.
McGregor hasn’t kicked a ball since mid-February for Celtic and has been on the sidelines recovering from a hamstring injury. Callum has played a lot of football this season, before his injury he has racked up over 50 games this term.
As he continues his recovery, Callum is set to join the bhoys back out on the Lennoxtown field. However, his call up means even if he isn’t ready to play for Celtic on Sunday against Dundee, he must report for international duty. This means the midfielder’s first game back from injury could be for the national side which will upset many Celtic fans.
Neil Lennon is looking at the positive side of the call up but did warn he may not be ready to go for the national side but will head out with the rest of the Celtic bhoys to be assessed by the Scotland coaches.
“Which players of ours go on International duty depends on how fit they are” Lennon told CelticTV.
“They will go and get assessed anyway. Some players returning from injury might actually need a game, which will be good for both us and the country.
“Hopefully, Callum McGregor will train this week and that will be a big boost for us.”
