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 fans 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.
McGregor outstanding the night but not one person will mention it.

Tbh i thought he was better than Gilmour, don’t know why he was MOTM and I’m not being biased when I say this, Tierney and Hanley MOTM for me tbh

‘We were a real threat in the game and we defended when we had to.’

Yeah. Gilmour did well & will get all the plaudits, but McGregor put in some shift and deserves more praise than he’s been given

His best game in a Scotland top by some distance! Calmac of 2 years ago! It is his best position!

McTominay at RCB made the space to put McGregor in with Gilmour and both were outstanding in equal measures. Let’s not dwell on the mistakes of the 1st game
Whit a performance
