Celtic manager Neil Lennon has suggested to The Scottish Sun that Callum McGregor could still be sold.

McGregor has only just signed a new five-year deal with Celtic, meaning that the midfielder is under contract at the Glasgow giants until 2024.

The Scotland international has been on the books of the Hoops his entire professional club football career so far and is a key figure in Lennon’s team.

However, Lennon has admitted that a big-money bid could tempt Celtic into cashing in on the 26-year-old.

Lennon told The Scottish Sun when asked if there could yet be bids for McGregor: “He’s committed to us and it would take a lot of money now to prise him away, but he seems happy and it’ll settle him.”

Leaving Celtic

McGregor has yet to hit his peak, and one should not be surprised if clubs in the Premier League in England come for the Scotsman soon.

True, it is hard to see Celtic sell the 26-year-old in the January transfer window, but perhaps next summer a big offer could tempt both the club and the midfielder.

According to WhoScored, McGregor has scored two goals in 11 Scottish Premiership games so far this season.
