Celtic is set to hand Callum McGregor the club captaincy when Scott Brown leaves the club according to Football Insider.
The 35-year-old’s contract will expire in the summer and it is unclear whether the Scottish team will grant him an extension.
The Celtic star has regressed this season and is clearly not the player he used to be. The Hoops need to keep going and bring in better players if they want to progress as a club.
McGregor has been a fabulous servant for the club in recent years and has the qualities to lead them in the future.
The 27-year-old is a product of the academy and knows the club from the inside out. You understand the fan base and should be able to relate to their values.
There’s no question that McGregor is probably best suited to take on the role of captain in the current squad. You have the attitude and quality to lead by example.
Premier League Leicester City were linked with McGregor in 2019 and also last summer. However, Celtic decided to block his exit.
He has been one of the few consistent players on the Celtic side this season and Football Insider claims the player could end up compromising the rest of his career with the Scottish club.
Such a development would certainly delight fans who adore McGregor.
