McGregor vow to ‘give everything’ regardless of what position he plays

Callum McGregor says he’s happy to play in any position for manager Brendan Rodgers after scoring in Celtic’s 3-0 win over Hamilton in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday. 

The Scottish international had been playing in a deeper midfield role earlier on in the season for the Hoops, but has been positioned further up the pitch in recent weeks.

That re-positioning gave McGregor the opportunity to get on the score sheet against the Accies this past weekend, but the Celtic player says he is happy to fill any role required of him by manager Brendan Rodgers.

“When you’re asked to play different positions your function in the team changes,” McGregor told

“When you’re playing a bit deeper, the onus isn’t on you to score as many goals. But when you start playing a little further forward, you try and chip in with a goal or two and try and help on that side of things as well. Whenever I play, I try to give my best and give what that role requires.

“[Hamilton goalkeeper Ryan] Fulton had a good game. We always try and score early here which helps keep the crowd on-side and keeps the whole atmosphere going. When you don’t get that first one early-doors, then it can start to get that little bit edgy.

“Thankfully, we were able to stick to our task, and keep playing the way that we always want to play. We got our chance, we took it, and we got a couple of late goals to sweeten it up for us.”
