Callum McGregor must resist Bournemouth interest and become Celtic’s next Scott Brown

Callum McGregor can become Celtic’s next captain if he ignores Bournemouth interest.

Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor is a January target for Bournemouth, according to The Scottish Sun.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is a big fan of McGregor and is ready to splash the cash to land the Scotsman in January to replace long-term absentee Lewis Cook.

And if the Cherries come in with a sizeable bid and Celtic accept, then McGregor has a choice to make.

Does he leave Celtic in January and join Europa League hopefuls Bournemouth?

 

Although the lure of the Premier League will be tempting, McGregor should consider staying at Celtic.

With captain Scott Brown coming towards the end of his career, many Celtic fans feel that either Kieran Tierney or McGregor will be the natural successor as skipper.

McGregor plays a key role in Brendan Rodgers’ side, operating as an attacking midfield playmaker or in a deeper role, as he did when Brown was out injured recently.

And the 25-year-old’s previous comments will certainly ease Celtic fans’ worries.

Speaking back in January, the Scotland international told The Scottish Sun: “Broony is probably one of the best captains Celtic’s ever had, and we’re lucky to be led by him.

“I can say from experience that having watched him, and tried to take on everything he does, then hopefully once he goes I’ll be the next one to try to set the standards he set for us as young players.”

McGregor has the talent to replace Brown on the pitch and the personality to take over his off-the-field duties – if he chooses to stay at Celtic.
