Finally, an ‘announce contract!’ tweet has paid off!

Callum McGregor signed a new five year deal with Celtic today, and it’s very welcome news.

McGregor said: “When you start here as a young kid, you’re just focused on trying to get through the age groups. You set yourself that one goal to get to the first team and play a first-team game, and I’m sitting here now coming up to my 250th game.

”To be at the club, hopefully, for the full five years, that will take me to 23 years at Celtic is something I could only have dreamt of as a young player.

”It’s been a tremendous four or five years for the club and obviously for me too. We’ve been winning pretty much everything on the pitch, the club’s growing on and off the pitch all the time and I’m just desperate to be a part of that.

”I feel as if I’m the best I’ve ever been in terms of performance, living on and off the pitch, I feel in a really good place and I’m delighted the club have rewarded that as well.

”It’s been a good start to the season, and I’ve tried to pick up where I left off last season in terms of performances and helping the team, so it’s been a great time.”

It’s a massive boost ahead of a big game in Rome tomorrow night, where we’ll need him to be at his dynamic best in midfield.

Preview will be up before the game, as well as an ever-accurate shoot prediction!
