New contract for crucial Callum McGregor


Callum McGregor (25) burst into our consciousness as a winger under Ronny Deila but has found his true calling as a deep-lying playmaker this season.  From there he establishes the pace at which Celtic play.

I previously heard Kieran Tierney say he enjoys full back better than the left-mid position he played as a youth, as he can see the game develop more from there.  The same is true of Callum, who is crucial to Celtic’s performances.

The key aspect he has is the ability to send and receive passes drilled to feet with pace.  Success in the modern game is increasingly about how fast a pass you can reliably control or make.   That close, intimate, control, Callum has permits him to play at the very highest level.

I am delighted he has signed a new contract, securing him until 2023.

Having secured the result at halftime, Celtic strolled the second half, no doubt with an eye on conserving energy in this most draining of months.  Injury to Odsonne Edouard was as predictable as it is regretful, but what a performance from Mikey Johnston.  I am sure he will not become a striker, but the lad has talent.  Delighted also for Anthony Ralston, who marked his return to the team with the opening goal.

    Best graffitti I ever saw as a youth, sprayed on the wall of a car wash at at petrol station.


    “My Ma Maks good soup”

  2. i once saw some of that post modern ironic type grafitti near a house in upper catlemilk.


    you know the type, a slant is put on a quotation from the famous or from popular culture.



    this was done by placing a pattern inside some brickwork in a long long drive way, i think the approach road, well when you get through the gaurded gates, is called Petrus Splendidas Way.



    The quotation says



    “the greatest trick the employee ever pulled was convincing the world he deserved the bonus”

    SPFL referees, part-time, already earn far more than even most skilled or professional workers so there is no shortage of money for full-time officials. Full-time referees should, in theory at least be better at their job. Celtic should get right behind the idea. Assuming that is the cabal are not still in charge,

    Absolutely agree.



    Not just because Sepp Bladder ( ! ) was against the idea.

    Meanwhile I am watching my 6year old season ticket holding grandson, and I took him into work to print something off, some of the guys were in and came over and introduced themselves and asked the wee fella about the Celtic. The sevco supporter said hello I am ….. But I support Rankers…. The wee mans response was Arthur Montford esc….. Woooooft he says…. To bursts of laughter… Sevco supporter sits down with a red face…??? by the way he made a fortune.
