Amazing how much McGregor and Forrest have regressed since Rodgers left. Should have sold them then. Be lucky to get 5 million for either of them now. Delicious.

Or in reality it makes you look bitter and unable to praise a player just because they play for Celtic ?
There is only 3 players in that Celtic squad I would take at Ibrox - Eduard / Christie and McGregor - does that make me any less staunch ?
Who exactly does Christie get ahead of in our team??? Absolutely no chance. The other 2 maybe but Christie is bang average.

“Credit to Rangers as they changed their game-plan. Every week we see them with their two full-backs really high but they sat in and protected the middle of the pitch.

“They did their homework as well and we have to be honest in that sense.”

Considering we’ve done the exact same thing in several games this season, including Motherwell against their 3-5-2, that is an absolutely damning indictment on Celtic’s analysis department. They should spend less time on twitter arguing with fans and more time actually watching our games.
No, they genuinely shouldn’t. Leave them to their Twitter.

Most overrated player in Scotland.

A flat track bully. Not deserving of his starting place in the national team.
I tend to agree with this.
When he doesn’t have his Lego eating thug of a captain holding his hand through games, he’s garbage. Was was totally anonymous, in the biggest game of THEIR season so far, he was missing. He has ability, yes, but he’s so far overrated it’s unreal. He, like his no necked friend is hitting his late 20s and yet most still see them as young boys still. He’s decent when he wants to be, but when he’s playing alongside the fraudulent captain, his game is stifled but he can’t play without him either.

Hugely overrated and history will be falsely kind to him and his ilk.

At least your family will be happy Callum thats the main thing.

I dont doubt for a minute that their dislike for each other is due to his background. Lennon is a bitter b@stard afterall he wont be able to hide that.

McGregor along with Rogic and Forrest have barely laid a glove on our team in three years.

McGregor is a decent player but he's over rated, especially by some on here. £25m to Leicester in the summer of 2019 according to a good few on FF at the time. English Premiership bound.

You barely heard his name yesterday, again.

A decent and nice guy according to this thread. Pass me the sick bowl.

He is definitely not happy and he has leaked team info in the past (see the mole thread). I'm not that ITK, but I've seen a message from him to a journalist with my own eyes. Maybe wasn't him yesterday, but he has in the past and it is maybe the reason why Lennon and him don't get on?

Our full backs did sit a bit deeper.

That is what we do in the games that are expected to be more difficult.

I don't really think McGregor's ability is in doubt but his form has fallen off a cliff since Rodgers left. Like so many in Scottish football, there is talent but they deserve a better level of coaching. We have numerous examples in our own squad who have benefited hugely from Beale, Gerrard, Culshaw etc.

He's a good player, this is nonsense.
Must admit I used to think he’s a good player. A long with a couple of their Scottish players

when you see them for Scotland and in Europe against better opposition they’re all pretty average at best

they looked good against us when we were a shambles

now we’ve actually got a really good squad that’s nearly every game for the last year to 18 months against us they’ve been dominated

The better the players around McGregor, the better he plays.

Under O'Neil, sorry, I mean Lennon, he is regressing as he is not the typical footballing thug so admired by the Celtic management.

His best days were under Rogers, he will never reach that level again under Lennon.

This chat about their players not liking Lennon - not sure that has really shown over the last two seasons. Yes they have not been overly impressive to watch (particularly against us) but they have still ground out the results. We need to remember this and ensure that this season ends differently.

It does appear that we have a more impressive footballing setup (coaching team, director of football etc) which is quite astonishing given the last 8 years (and may well explain why we are now out performing them in Europe - again, incredible given where we have been).
