CELTIC midfielder Callum McGregor has agreed a bumper new deal that will keep him at the champions until 2023, at least.
The 25-year-old Scotland international playmaker signed the extension to his current contract which still had two-and-a-half years to run.
He played his 41st match of a hectic season as the Hoops thumped Motherwell 3-0 at Parkhead last night.
The Glaswegian, a former ball-boy at the club, joins James Forrest, Olivier Ntcham, Tom Rogic and Mikey Johnston in penning a long-term deal.
McGregor was linked with Premier League outfit Bournemouth earlier this month, but has now pledged his future to his boyhood favourites.
The news was confirmed in a statement from the club which read: “Celtic are delighted to announce that Callum McGregor has agreed a new deal which will see him remain with the club until at least the summer of 2023.”
McGregor – who made his 200th appearance for the team in the 2-0 loss against Hibs at Easter Road on Sunday – has scored 34 goals, including the winner on his debut in July 2014 when he netted the only goal in a victory against KR Reykjavik in a Champions League qualifier.
He has won four Premiership titles, three League Cups and two Scottish Cups with the club.
