Celtic beat Hibernian 5-2 on Saturday in the Scottish League cup semi-final – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were heavily impressed by the display of midfielder Callum McGregor.
Neil Lennon’s team recorded a comfortable victory at Hampden Park, as they really flexed their muscles in front of goal and were devastating going forward.
The Bhoys raced into a two-goal lead early on and Mohamed Elyounoussi opened the scoring to continue his fine individual form.
McGregor netted the second with a close-range finish, before Hibs cut the deficit through Melker Hallberg.
Elyounoussi added another to his personal tally to restore a two-goal cushion just before half-time and captain Scott Brown put the contest to bed with the first of his two goals, while Florian Kamberi also notched for Hibs in the high-scoring affair.
A selection of Celtic supporters on social media felt that midfielder McGregor was excellent at the weekend and really stood out.
Aside from just his first-half goal, the 26-year-old helped dominate possession in the centre of the park and proved too hot for Hibs to handle.
He brings a great energy in the central midfield area and has become a key player under Lennon.
Here are some Celtic fans waxing lyrical about McGregor:

No idea who got motm today. Plenty of contenders.
For me Callum McGregor was absolutely top drawer.
Even pitching in with hearty tackles today, not usually his forte.
Running, interplay, interceptions. Had everything bar a goal.#CalMac
