Midfielder Callum McGregor says Celtic’s final Champions League game against Anderlecht will offer a true reflection of their likely strength in the Europa League.

As long as the Hoops avoid a three-goal defeat to their visitors they will progress into that competition at their expense.

The Scottish champions already comprehensively won the reverse meeting 3-0 in Belgium back in September.

“Everyone looked at the two Anderlecht games as the ones that would decide if we have European football after Christmas,” McGregor told BBC Scotland. “So we’ve put ourselves in a great position to do that and hopefully we can finish the job.

“We are getting better at this level – I know we’ve conceded a few goals but ultimately the performances have been better and more stable as well,” he added. “Definitely we’ve progressed and tomorrow night will be the telling point if we can go and do it.”
