Callum McGregor believes Celtic are on their way to top form as they have won their last six games and are second in the Premiership table.

In October


lost 2-0 to Rangers and it was the start of a poor form as they only won two games out of 12 and even fans started protesting outside the stadium.

But, Celtic manager

Neil Lennon

turned things around and now Celtic have won their last six games and are going to face


again on Saturday.

Celtic are now second in the


table and are 16 points behind the leaders Rangers with three games in hand and now Callum McGregor believes Celtic are on their way to top form.

“We are getting there. We have scored goals. We are probably not just as free-flowing as we have been recently but we have created chances so it is just a case of putting the chances away,” McGregor said.

“So we are starting to get there, we look good, the shape is decent and we are starting to look more solid as well.

“We are on a decent run and we are looking forward to the game.

“We have certainly built a wee bit of momentum going into the game so we are looking forward to it.

“We came through a difficult period and managed to get back on track.

“We have completed the season from last year (with a delayed 2020 William Hill Scottish Cup final win over Hearts) which is a nice wee boost but there is a lot of football to be played and it starts again on Saturday.”

Their game against the Rangers will be held behind closed doors due to the coronavirus.

“It was a bit strange. Obviously, you associate the fixture with the fans and the thrill of the game,” he added.

“It is a little bit different but we have had enough time to adjust to the empty stadiums and trying to get the intensity of the game right.

“Both teams are obviously trying to win the game and we need to expect a really strong Rangers side. These games are always difficult.

“You have to be at your best to win the game, I think that has been shown in the last three or four years.

“If you are not quite right you will get done and that is the same for us.

“We go into the game with confidence high and we have scored a few goals as well recently which is good so we know what we can bring to the table and we just have to prepare properly and turn up on the day.”
