Callum McGregor has hit out at some of the Celtic support and certain pundits after questions were raised about one of his squad members and their ability within the Celtic squad.

Many questions were asked of Scott Brown and if the 35 year old could continue leading the Scottish Champions at the highest level.

Celtic haven’t kick started their season in top form this year and fans have been analyzing certain performances, as a 35 year old it seems our captain’s ability keeps cropping up amongst our online supporters.

As McGregor is Celtic’s vice-captain and Scott Brown’s main man in the dressing room, it only makes sense that Callum knows if Brown is capable to keep his first team role.

The midfielder has every belief in Scott Brown and even goes on to state that Broonie is the fittest player in the squad.

“He’s immense. He’s absolutely immense He’s 35 but he’s probably the fittest in the team.

“He drives everybody on. He’s absolutely excellent. His influence for us never ever wavers.

“Sometimes, as he’s getting older, people just see one missed tackle maybe or maybe one change of pace that’s not right in the game, and because of his age they try to throw that at him.

“Playing in there beside him, I can tell you that he hasn’t lost a yard. He’s always the fittest guy on the pitch, he’s the fittest in training and he drives the standards.

“He’s been excellent, but certainly in the last couple of games he’s really shown his mettle again and shown why he’s such a top player.

“He’s just been a leader from day one, and he’s driving that through the whole squad. If you don’t watch that and learn from it then you’re missing a trick in my book.

“Everything he does, I watch it and try to learn from it. He’s been an incredible influence on me.”

Scott Brown should be the first player named on the team sheet as our fearless leader still has at the very least this season left in him before making a decision on his next move, rumours are that Celtic have already offered Brown a coaching role next term.
