CALLUM McGREGOR is hoping to prove he is Celtic’s Man for all Seasons.

The player has moved from an attacking midfielder to Scott Brown’s anchorman role while filling in at full-back in this campaign.

And the versatile McGregor admits he will play to the best of his ability wherever boss Brendan Rodgers places him in the team.

He said: “When you’re asked to play different positions your function in the team changes. When you’re playing a bit deeper, the onus isn’t on you to score as many goals. But when you start playing a little further forward, you try and chip in with a goal or two.

“Wherever I play, I try to give my best and give what that role requires.”

McGregor, 25, claimed the Hoops’ opening goal in the 3-0 win over Hamilton Accies yesterday with Ryan Christie and Scott Sinclair adding the others.

The Scotland international paid a tribute to opposing goalie Ryan Fulton when he said: “I thought their keeper had a good game.

“We always try and score early here which helps keep the crowd onside and keeps the whole atmosphere going. When you don’t get that first one early on, then it can start to get that little bit edgy.

“Thankfully, we were able to stick to our task and keep playing the way that we always want to play. We got our chance, we took it and we got a couple of late goals to sweeten it up for us.”

McGregor, who recently signed a new long-term deal at the champions, is likely to play in an attacking role when St Johnstone visit in midweek.
