Some Scotland fans have singled out Callum McGregor for criticism in the wake of the heavy defeat against Belgium. Scotland hosted Belgium and there was an outside chance of them getting a respectable result.
But Belgium ran riot instead. Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring before Thomas Vermaelen and Toby Alderweireld made it 3-0 before half-time. Kevin De Bruyne rubbed salt into the wounds with a late fourth.
McGregor has taken a hit on social media following his performance for the Scots. The 26-year-old has been in good form for Celtic yet again this season but struggled against a talented Belgian side.
Lining up against some world-class players, many Scotland players struggled to have an influence on the game. McGregor was one of those who could not dominate the game like he often does for the Bhoys.
Scotland fans did not hold back on Twitter. A number of players were blasted for their performances against Belgium, including McGregor. Here are some tweets directed at the Celtic star following the 4-0 loss against Belgium.
May I add Callum McGregor was the worst player in the park tonight and that’s saying something. Pointing and hiding the whole time he was on it. We were 10 men soon as we kicked off.

Surely it can’t be just me who doesn’t get all the fuss over this guy? Granted I don’t watch Celtic but every time I do, he flatters to deceive! Playing above his level imo!
