Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor has suggested he could become a one-club man, after signing a new five-year deal at Parkhead.
The 26-year-old academy graduate is a hugely popular figure at the club and has enjoyed brilliant success in the form of five league titles, three Scottish Cups and three League Cups so far.
He’s made 248 appearances and scored 55 goals, but the best is likely yet to come from one of last season’s PFA Scotland Player of the Year nominees.
Fans were delighted he has committed his long-term future to the club, but they’ll be even happier to hear McGregor already speaking about possibly finishing his career with the Bhoys.
He said (Scottish Herald): “Yeah, I think so. It’s a real possibility. It’s a massive statement from the club. Obviously, I really value how highly they regard me. I think so. I am certainly looking forward to the next few years.
“Hopefully we can extend that even further and I could end up finishing my career at Celtic.”
TBR’s view – Excellent move to tie McGregor down
McGregor’s renewal is great news for the club.
The talented Scotland international arguably has the capacity to play in the Premier League and so tieing him down to a long contract protects their asset if anything.
One gets the feeling though that McGregor could well go on to become a one-club man.
He loves the club, and perhaps he will succeed Scott Brown as the next club captain.
