After a season getting dragged into the mire at Callum McGregor was back to his best at last night.

The long-serving Celt was left on the bench for ’s defeat against the but came in from the cold alongside Billy Gilmour against England.

Phil Foden, Declan Rice, Raheem Sterling, Kalvin Phillips and Jack Grealish have been hailed as the Wonders of the World by the English media but weren’t given any chance to make an impression.

McGregor was as good as anyone on the park, playing the full 90 minutes with minimal fuss and maximum efficiency to give Scotland a chance of making it through to the knock-out stage.

For Celtic it was a reminder of the ability of their man. There was no tiredness or fatigue as he found himself playing in a well organised and motivated side playing with purpose.

Ange Postecoglou watched alongside Dom McKay knowing that at least one piece of his Celtic jigsaw is in place.
