Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor has expressed his optimism about a return to Celtic Park this season to work under a new manager, after the departure of former boss Neil Lennon.

Lennon suddenly left the club last week after four years in charge and is yet to be replaced.

McGregor, who failed to make his mark under the former manager and was loaned out to League One side Notts County, therefore sees Lennon's departure as a positive sign for his career, as he looks to break into the first team at Celtic.

"The fact the club are changing managers will make it difficult," the 20-year-old told the Press Association.


"But I'm definitely determined to come back again next year and try to break into the team."

McGregor managed 40 appearances for Notts County during the 2013/14 season, notching up an impressive 14 goals.

"I've had a good season.

"So now I want to take that back with me to Lennoxtown and do everything I can to earn my place," the Scotland Under-21 added.
