Celtic manager Neil Lennon was majorly impressed with the performance of Callum McGregor in midweek during the league victory away to Motherwell.
The Bhoys recorded an emphatic 4-0 away win at third-placed Motherwell to ensure they remain seven points clear at the top of the table, albeit having played a game more than second-placed rivals Rangers.
Odsonne Edouard (two), Leigh Griffiths and McGregor were all on the scoresheet for the visitors, as they put on a great offensive performance.
McGregor fired in the third goal of the contest, as his cushioned touch on the edge of the box teed the ball up for himself and he rifled it into the net.
The central midfielder was also on hand to assist Griffiths for his goal after a driving run to the byline before his pulled back cross.
He’s been in great form since returning after the winter break and is such an influential for the league leaders.
Lennon was blown away by the quality of McGregor’s latest contribution and insists he keeps getting better.
“He’s just on top of his game. Callum McGregor is an outstanding footballer and he’s just getting better and better,” Lennon said, as quoted by the club’s official Youtube account.
McGregor really is beginning to mature as a Celtic player and so much of the team’s play goes through him in the centre of the park.
The 26-year-old is such a reliable figure for the Bhoys on a weekly basis and he was pulling the strings against Motherwell.
He is a Scotland international that appears to be thriving under Lennon at club level and he perhaps doesn’t get the kind of recognition that he deserves.
