The Hoops will overtake leaders Rangers if they extend their winning streak to six games at home against Livingston tomorrow.

And McGregor said, “It’s as good as we’ve been. Some things were exceptional. We should have been five before they had a chance.

“It was our best show away from home. We almost played like a home game in the first half. It’s good that we seem to get better with every game.

“We will look to keep doing it, keep working hard, stay calm under pressure – and continue to trust the manager and what he is trying to do.”

The Celts have now won at Aberdeen, Motherwell and Hibs after waiting seven months for an away win in the domestic game.

And McGregor believes they will stay grounded and continue to push hard at the top of the Premiership standings.

He added: “We’ve been to a few tough places and won and for a new group it’s super important to know you can go.”

Meanwhile, Celtic announced Scottish actors Martin Compston, Gianni Capaldi and Tony Curran as the club’s new charity ambassadors.

The stars, who are all longtime friends and supporters of the club, will work alongside the Celtic FC Foundation.
