Celtic's Callum McGregor is being considered for Scotland call-up”

Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor has been called up to Gordon Stachan's Scotland squad after injury withdrawals - and Celtic fans think he should have been in the squad to begin with.

His potential call-up has been prompted by a double injury blow in the Scotland midfield, with McGregor's Celtic club-mates Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong having been ruled out through injury.

The 24-year-old scored twice to preserve Celtic's unbeaten record in the 2-2 draw with Hibernian on Saturday, taking his tally to six goals in 15 appearances this season. But while the Easter Road man was already firmly in Strachan's plans, the Celtic playmaker had previously been unable to win a place in the squad despite a national clamour, earning a solitary call-up from Strachan more than three years ago.

Skipper Brown has a hamstring problem while Armstrong's issue is with his calf.

But McGregor does not believe it will happen and thinks Gordon Strachan is happy with his options heading into the global fixtures.

"The manager has picked his squad".

"All I can do is keep performing for Celtic and keep coming up with goals and assists", he added.

"But to be able to play in the World Cup, then I could sit back once I retire and be very happy. That is my main focus, and anything after that is a bonus".

Scotland face Slovakia at Glasgow's Hampden Park on Thursday before playing Slovenia in Ljubljana on Sunday, October 8.
