Callum McGregor has vowed to help Celtic get back on track after their defeat to Sevco and the midfielder aims to begin this road of healing on Thursday against AC Milan.

The Scottish Champions have a huge task ahead in their Europa League quest as Milan will be our first opponents in the group stages.

The squad will be deflated after the loss at the weekend and its up to key players such as McGregor and Brown to pick the others up and get the team moving in the right direction again.

McGregor spoke to the club’s site:

“When you lose a derby game there are questions asked and we have to face up to that. We did it in December and kicked on from there. We have to take that experience, learn from this and go on a run. We have to take confidence from what happened last time.

“What I would say is that we have to stay calm and we have to stay together. The sooner we can get the fans back into the stadium, the better, as they are a massive help to us.

“We have to keep the faith, trust the team and trust the manager and what we’re doing. We have been here loads of times before and have a load of experience. We are by no means out of it.”

“Sometimes when you are missing those key players then, subconsciously, you do have that little doubt that shouldn’t be there,” he said, “but we all have to accept the responsibility as a team when we don’t play well.

“We need to put our foot to the floor and the good thing is we have a massive game against AC Milan this week to get up and running again.”
