'Outstanding' McGregor a 'top talent' - Rodgers

Celtic 4-1 Hearts

Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor pitched in with seven goals last season, including four in his last seven games.

He scored a hat-trick in a pre-season friendly win at Sunderland last Saturday and opened his account this term with a thumping strike for the champions' fourth
goal against Hearts.

“He had a big season last year," manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "He quietly goes about his work and is an outstanding player. We don’t sing too
many songs about him, but he comes in and trains well every day and can play in different positions.

“He was unfortunate not to have another couple of
goals today and he is a top talent. I enjoy working with him. You can see the confidence in his game, he understands how we function and I think this will be another important season for him."
