Detailing his passion for life at the club as he branded the new terms as the beginning of a "new chapter", McGregor said: “I’m absolutely delighted. It’s a proud moment again to extend my stay at the club.

"The club’s very close to my heart. I’ve been here for a number of years now, I’m happy here, I love my football and representing this club, and I want to stay here for as long as I can.

“This is a new chapter and I’m desperate to see the five years out and if I’ve done that, then that means it’s been a pretty successful time again."

McGregor also spoke of the increased drive to succeed at Celtic after penning an extension as he seeks a period of domestic success.

He added: “That’s the new motivation for me personally, to make sure this club wins silverware and get it back to that successful place where we were two, three, four seasons ago.”

McGregor first joined Celtic aged just eight years old, signing with the youth academy.

He has made 338 appearances for the club, netting 54 times in his trophy-laden career at Parkhead.

The Hoops captain has so far won six league titles, four Scottish Cups and four League Cups.

Delighted boss Ange Postecoglou told Celtic TV: “It’s brilliant news for the club. Obviously it was an important year for Cal stepping up to be the new captain and he’s already shown outstanding qualities

“He espouses the values that I’m after. He understands what we’re trying to build and, on and off the field, he’s not just talking about it, he’s living it and he’s showing the behaviour that I want leaders to show, and as I said, he’s just taken his first steps but I think that it’s exciting with what’s ahead.”
