Celtic captain Callum McGregor has been labelled as a ‘manager’s dream’ by Scotland boss Steve Clarke as he closes in on his 50th cap for his country, as cited by The Herald

The midfielder has made 30 appearances for the Hoops this season, registering three goals and two assists, as per Transfermarkt

McGregor has already played a significant part in Celtic’s Viaplay Cup triumph in 2022/23 and will want to add the Scottish Premiership title and Scottish Cup to his lengthy list of honours before the campaign draws to a close. 

Tartan Army manager Clarke has once again selected McGregor for international duty, where he will win his 50th cap if chosen to play against either Cyprus or Spain later this month. 

The former West Brom manager was very complimentary towards the media when speaking in a press conference in the aftermath of naming his squad for Scotland’s upcoming EURO 2024 qualifying matches. 

Clarke told the press: 

“He is a credit to himself and to his club and he is a credit to his country. Every time you pick him he is there.

“He plays almost every minute of every game for Celtic, he plays almost every minute of every game for us. He is just very, very consistent. His quality is good. He is low maintenance, high quality. He is a manager’s dream.”
