AS Celtic supporters welcome one player into the club, they will be desperately hoping that one of their top talents doesn’t exit the club in the coming weeks.

Callum McGregor has been linked with a £10m move to join his old manager Brendan Rodgers down the road at Leicester, but there is absolutely no way that Celtic should be thinking about letting him leave the club for that price.

So, if he is to leave – and there is no indication from McGregor himself that he would welcome a move – then Celtic should be aiming much higher in terms of a transfer fee.

Leicester may well be losing James Maddison and Harry Maguire this summer, but they will rake in fortunes for those players, and given the length of contract that McGregor has, Celtic aren’t in a position where they have to accept the first big bid that comes along.

He has become such a key player for Celtic and he would be a huge loss. What he has done in the last couple of seasons has been exceptional, and he hasn’t looked back since he was brought into a central midfield role.

He played 69 games last season, and there is a reason for that. Some of his best football last season was when Scott Brown was out and he was sitting deep, so his versatility is so important to the Celtic squad too.

He has gotten himself much fitter, and that has meant he has been much more consistent as a result.

It would be a massive setback for Celtic to lose him, and as such, he should only leave if a huge offer comes in.
