Callum McGregor Says He’d be ‘Delighted’ to Spend His Entire Career at Celtic

Callum McGregor has revealed he’s keen to spend his entire career at Celtic after putting pen-to-paper on a new long-term deal with the Scottish champions.

The Scotland international has been rewarded for three outstanding seasons under Brendan Rodgers with a contract until the summer of 2023, no doubt on vastly improved terms.

At one point in his Celtic career, mainly under former manager Ronny Deila, McGregor was a much-maligned figure amongst the club’s supporters but the 25-year-old is now undoubtedly one of the Hoops most important players.

And speaking via the official Celtic website after announcing news of his extended commitment, McGregor was happy to speak openly about his desire to be a one-club man.

He explained: “If I could do that, I’d be absolutely delighted.

“Broony last night getting to 500 appearances, that’s testament to his attitude, his quality, his mentality.

“For me, to aspire to something like that, I’d be very proud of doing that aswell.

“I’m so proud to play for Celtic, it’s one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“I’ve enjoyed my football, especially over the last two-and-a-half years since the manager came in.

“He’s challenged me to go to the next level, I feel like I’m doing that.

“Everything going well, I want to be here for as long as I can.”

With Scott Brown now 33, could McGregor be his long-term successor for Celtic in the middle of the pitch, and could he even be a Celtic captain of the future?
