Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor has promised that the team will regroup and bounce back from their defeat against Livingston.

The Hoops fell to a 2-0 defeat on Sunday and played a majority of the game with ten men after Ryan Christie’s early red card.

Neil Lennon’s side goes into the international break in second place in the league table. As quoted on the official club website, McGregor said:

It’s disappointing to go into the international break knowing you haven’t finished as well as you’d wanted.

You have to wait two weeks for the game to come around again before you can try and put things right. I’m sure everyone will go away, keep working hard, hopefully, come back fit and we’ll press that reset button and go again.

Encouraging words from the midfielder?


McGregor’s reaction to the defeat will please the club’s fans. It proves that the winning mentality has been instilled into the players and they’re desperate to put things right.

The midfielder was on the end of some criticism from some Celtic fans after the defeat but he was defended by Lennon, who praised his consistent performances. 

The Hoops take on Ross County after the international break.

Do you think Celtic will win the league title this season?
