Glasgow Celtic are not open to selling Callum McGregor this summer amidst interest from Leicester City, according to a report published by The Daily Record. 

Foxes manager Brendan Rodger is reportedly looking to bring the Scotland international, whom he worked with at the Hoops, to his Premier League side this summer.

The 26-year-old McGregor is an important component of the Celtic first team and he went on to make 59 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring six goals.

The Hoops are aware that they will face a stern test from Rangers next season and so while they are bound to lose one or two players, the Parkhead giants should try to retain the core within their side as they look to defend their domestic treble for another season.

McGregor has proven that he has the creative ability and energy to be one of the best in his position in the Scottish game.

However, the Scotland international may be interested in testing himself in the Premier League, especially with Rodgers at the helm at Leicester.

Celtic can ill-afford to lose McGregor, especially as speculation over Olivier Ntcham’s future persists and Scott Brown has turned 34 this week.

Keeping the star midfielder would be a statement by the Hoops, especially if they refuse to sell him to a Premier League club offering a sizeable fee.
