Celtic captain Callum McGregor has signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until 2026. McGregor joined the Celtic academy at the age of eight. He has made 338 appearances for the club, scoring 54 goals in the process. He made his debut in 2014 and has been a mainstay in the team ever since. The midfielder has won 14 trophies with the club including Celtic’s quadruple treble. Following the departure of Scott Brown to Aberdeen, he was given the armband.
“I’m absolutely delighted. It’s a proud moment again to extend my stay at the club.” Celtic captain Callum McGregor said. “The club’s very close to my heart. I’ve been here for a number of years now, I’m happy here, I love my football and representing this club, and I want to stay here for as long as I can. This is a new chapter and I’m desperate to see the five years out and if I’ve done that, then that means it’s been a pretty successful time again.”
“It’s brilliant news for the club. Obviously, it was an important year for Cal stepping up to be the new captain and he’s already shown outstanding qualities.” Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou said. “He espouses the values that I’m after. He understands what we’re trying to build and, on and off the field, he’s not just talking about it, he’s living it and he’s showing the behavior that I want leaders to show, and as I said, he’s just taken his first steps but I think that it’s exciting with what’s ahead.”
