Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor admits that he is full of confidence following his recent return to form for Ronny Deila’s side.

The 22-year-old originally broke into the Bhoys’ first-team at the start of last season, scoring goals against Ross County and St Johnstone, but he found his chances to impress limited as the season progressed.

The former Scotland under-21 international has had more opportunities to shine during the current campaign, appearing in 20 of the Hoops’ 30 Scottish Premiership matches to date.

The youngster has also scored in the recent league victory against Partick Thistle and the Scottish Cup success over Greenock Morton, and he admits that he is feeling confident following his recent contribution.

He said: “I feel good, I feel at home and happy to take the ball and try to do something good for us, whether get a goal or set one up. I feel confident in that role now.”

McGregor’s next chance to shine will be when the Glasgow giants play host to Heart of Midlothian in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday, where a victory will see the Bhoys move seven points clear at the top of the league standings on a temporary basis at least.

Celtic are on offer at 1.22 to secure all three points from the contest, while Hearts are available 12.00 and the draw is priced at 6.00.
