BRENDAN RODGERS believes Callum McGregor will become a key performer for Scotland as well as Celtic over the next decade.
The midfielder made his international debut in the 1-0 defeat from Holland at Pittodrie last week.
Stand-in boss Malky Mackay had no hesitation in handing a first cap to the 24-year-old playmaker in the friendly against the Dutch after previous gaffer Gordon Strachan ignored the Hoops star’s claims.
Rodgers expects McGregor to play a much fuller role under a new manager in the future.
The Irishman said: “At that level, there is still more to come from Callum as he gains confidence.
“He has this great ability to keep the ball and that’s so important at international level.
“You see it in the Champions League, so he’ll be an important player over the next 10 years for Scotland.”
