McGregor: The goal that set us on the way to double treble is best of my life.

Callum McGregor reckons that the goal that sent Celtic on their way to a double treble is the best he has ever scored.
The midfielder knew from the moment it left his foot, his stunning half-volley would end up in the back of the net.
And despite scoring in every competition he has played in this term, including scoring against Bayern Munich and Zenit, he insists that the stunning strike was his best yet.
He said: “That is probably the best one in terms of magnitude of the game and what was at stake.
“I caught it sweet and it went in off the inside of the post.
“It is an amazing feeling to contribute like that in a big game and help the team win.
“I knew it was going in as soon as I made contact with the ball. It was a sweet strike and I’m obviously delighted to get the goal.

“It was similar to the one against Rangers in the semi-final. You just try to react first and then get a good contact on it. The first touch was good and I managed to finish it.”
Oliver Ntcham was also on the score sheet as the Celts became the club in Scotland to get a double treble.
And McGregor said: “It probably won’t sink in for a couple of weeks.
“It’s all still a bit raw in terms of the size of what we’ve done.
“We all work hard for each other and the fans.”
McGregor has cemented his place in the Hoops midfield and proved his worth at Hampden with a tremendous display.
With the likes of Rogic and Ajer signing new contracts and committing their futures to Celtic, McGregor would gladly stay at the Celts for the rest of his career.
He also hopes Rodgers, can keep this history breaking team together.
McGregor said: “It is a special group and to keep that together and keep everyone fighting and wanting to move in the right direction, that will help us.
“Of course I want to stay long term.
“It is an amazing club and we get the opportunity to play Champions League football.
“We are winning things every year and if you have that hunger then you will continue to do so.
“You see the scenes at Hampden and you see how big a club it is.
“You know the history and to be part of that makes you want to stay as long as you can.”
Mikael Lustig clearly enjoyed the celebrations as he put on a DIY Police hat – remembering the infamous goal celebration during the 5-0 trouncing of Rangers.

He also warned his city rivals and every club in Scotland that his team won’t stop in their attempt to win trophies.
He said “We’ll enjoy the next few days and our summer then come back focused on trying to win the league and cups again. We’re at a big club and that is the expectation.”
