Callum McGregor urges calm as Rangers fail to punish Celtic for dropped points at Hibs

CALLUM MCGREGOR has appealed for calm after Celtic dropped points against Hibernian, saying the players have to continue to trust Ange Postecoglou’s process.

The Celtic captain is adamant that his side deserved more from the goalless draw at Easter Road, but with Rangers also drawing with Motherwell at Ibrox and their title fate still in their hands, McGregor says there is no need for panic.

And he believes that if they continue to focus on themselves then they will get the wins required to stay at the top of the Premiership.

“You can control what’s inside your building, McGregor said. “If you start looking elsewhere, that’s maybe where the pressure comes.

“We can only concentrate on our training and matches. Individually we have to perform.

“Whether you are six points behind, three points in front or one point in front or whatever, it doesn’t make a difference.

“Everyone plays the same amount of games come the end of the season, so the chances will tell you if you win the majority of your games, you’ll win the league.

“That’s all we can focus on. Not any other result, someone doing us a favour, anything like that. It’s purely down to what we do.

“The group has done ever so well to get us to this position. A lot of new players, young team, new team who have done so well to get this point, so we have to stay calm and trust each other, trust the process and what the manager is asking us to do.

“I think there was enough in the game, chances, possession control, we limited them to very little in the game as well.

“Sometimes in football, it has a funny way that you don’t get what you deserve out of a game, so we have to accept that and accept the result is not what we wanted.

“But if we produce performances like that and chances like that, over the piece we’ll do enough.”
