Video: Callum McGregor Talks Leigh Griffiths, Brendan Rodgers and Scotland

Callum McGregor gave his view on Leigh Griffiths, Brendan Rodgers and establishing himself for Scotland while speaking to the media yesterday.

The Celtic midfielder is part of Alex McLeish’s squad for the Nations League trip to Israel tomorrow and was put in front of the press to build up to that game.

The biggest story for the Tartan Army this week has been Griffiths’ decision to withdraw from the squad, citing an issue with his fitness.

So it’s no surprise that McGregor was asked about his club and country team-mate’s withdrawal.

McGregor was also asked about Rodgers being linked with the vacant Aston Villa job as well as the criticism Celtic have taken this season.

And he also spoke about his breakthrough at Scotland and what he is targeting with the national team.

You can watch his full press conference here:

McGregor will be hoping to start against Israel tomorrow night – and we fancy him to do that in our predicted Scotland XI here.
