Callum McGregor delighted to keep incredible Cup Final run going

Callum McGregor has revealed that he was delighted to keep the doubters waiting as he extended his incredible unbeaten Cup Final run with last month’s win over theRangers.

Adam Idah’s 90th minute winner proved to be decisive as Brendan Rodgers’ side completed a Double. McGregor was instrumental in the success of the end of the season, fighting back from an Achilles injury (that appeared to end his season) before leading Celtic to two more trophies.

Speaking to The Celtic View, McGregor admitted that he wanted to keep the run going but admitted that there was needs to be some luck at times.

“I don’t want anybody to jinx me, but then people talk about it and you think: Let’s make them wait a bit longer. I’m delighted, you can only prepare so much, you get yourself mentally and physically ready, prepare the team, then there’s a little bit of luck comes into it as well.

“I’m delighted to keep it going, and the more it grows arms and legs, the better you feel about it. When you come back, you arrive into these big games full of confidence because you’ve got so much to look back on.”

McGregor started all three of Scotland’s games during their ill-fated Euro 2024 campaign in Germany. The 31-year-old will be eager to get himself back to Celtic after a well-earned rest before preparations begin for the new season.

There had been a suggestion that the manager allow McGregor to enjoy a period of rest after getting back from that injury and then going straight from the end of the season into the Euros.
