Celtic in loaded Graeme Souness clamp as they set Rangers hero straight on Callum McGregor

Premiership champions Celtic didn't miss a beat when they clamped Graeme Souness over his description of Callum McGregor as the Parkhead leader came alive for Scotland

The football icon described McGregor as the 'Celtic captain' in his searing takedown of the midfielder's role in Jamal Musiala's second goal in Germany's dominant 5-1 win on Friday night. Souness moved to clarify the remark during his withering rant about the Celtic leader – insisting he merely forgot McGregor's name.

But Celtic didn't miss as they let the world know who was integral in helping tee up Scotland star Scott McTominay find the back of the net. 'Celtic captain' was the message on their socials. Souness was left vexed about Scotland's display and, in particular, was miffed by McGregor's role in the goal which put the Germans out of sight.

Souness – speaking to ITV – said: "Gundogan, again, great turn, he slips Havertz in, back to Musiala, wrong foots the Celtic captain, yet again, that's two in the same move. He tries to nick it here, Callum McGregor, and he gets back in, he tries to nick it again – just stay goalside and stop the effort on your goal."
