Column McGregor knows that all eyes will be on Celtic on Sunday – for all the wrong reasons.
The Hoops deserved praise for their unbeaten run in 17 games that saw them beat the Rangers and move to the top of the Premiership.
But the way they lost to the two-time Norwegian champion Bodo / Glimt on Thursday night raised question marks.
This defeat has dashed their hopes of reaching the last 16 of the Conference League.
But the captain – who called his display a bid – insists he will be willing to handle the spotlight as he seeks to bounce back with a league win over Dundee.

McGregor said: “Everyone will look at us and see how we react. Will our heads go down? Will we work so hard? We have to go and answer these questions. Good about football. The point is, every three or four days you have a chance to make things right.
“This is exactly what we will try and do. Our focus will be on recovering in the next few days and then we will go against Dundee again.
“It’s all a big game. Especially when you get to that point in the season, every point counts and every game counts.

Hopes’ shock defeat came shortly after title rivals Rangers German giants Borussia Dortmund were sidelined in such a spectacular manner. It was a reminder of how balanced things are this season, just one point clear of Ange Postecoglou’s reshuffle side Gers in the race for the Premiership title.
McGregor said: “We are doing well in the league. Thursday’s result was disappointing.
“When your result is good, you need to follow it with other good results. That’s exactly what it is.

“You have to be on it. It’s up to the players to make sure they rest, get the right fuel and go again when the big games come.”
“It’s the beauty of being in this club. The standards are always high and you have to meet them.
“You have to do everything you can so that when the next game comes you are refreshed and ready to go. You attack every game exactly the same. You have to win.”

Dundee has won its last two games but will be owned for the first time by former Celtic striker Mark McGee, who took over after the shock out of James McPack. McGregor knows that a new voice in a changing room can attract more people to life and warn her colleagues to be prepared for it.
He added: “I have seen this many times in football, where teams get a boost from a new manager.
“Obviously they have won their last two games anyway so the players will be feeling good about themselves.
“We just have to do our homework and when we go to Park Head on Sunday we have to give everything to win the game.”
