Celtic fans have had their say on Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor retiring from international football.
Celtic fans on Twitter want Scott Bain to become Scotland’s number one goalkeeper after Rangers’ Allan McGregor announced his retirement from international football.
As reported by BBC Sport, the 37-year-old is opting to focus on club football and has, as a result, decided to call it a day, with Alex McLeish naming his squad on Tuesday.
The former Premier League manager has named, Millwall’s Jordan Archer, Sunderland’s Jon McLaughlin and Celtic’s, Scott Bain as his three main men between the sticks, as reported by BBC Sport.
Nonetheless, Bhoys fans on social media were adamant that they want to see their main man start for Scotland, who are hoping to qualify for the 2020 European Championships.
One fan stated that Scotland ‘don’t need’ McGregor, while another expressed his surprise at his decision to retire because he felt that the Rangers man was happy playing in goal for his country.
Here is a selection of Celtic fans on Twitter reacting to what McGregor opted to do on Monday ahead of the international fixtures later this month:
McLeish will have told him he’s going to start with Bain and he’ll have taken the cream puff.— Sean Hamilton (@seanhammy85) March 11, 2019
We don’t need him leaving sly digs on folk and getting sent off during the qualifiers.
Scott Bain 100%— shannon. (@Shannonxmcauley) March 11, 2019

Surprised by this. I thought McGregor would’ve been happy to continue in goal for Scotland. Oh well looks like Bain may get a shout as Gordon hasn’t been in goal this year yet for Celtic. McGregor a good keeper to lose for us.— Craig s (@scotcraig1983) March 11, 2019
It’s got to be Scott Bain— EwenC2006 (@C2006Ewen) March 11, 2019
Over the course of this season, McGregor has been a regular in goal for Steven Gerrard’s side, who are chasing silverware at the end of the campaign.
