This time next week Celtic will have played two competitive games, both at home, and we will have a chance to properly assess preseason preparations. Even if victories are achieved against HJK Helsinki and Aberdeen the challenges for the remainder of the month, with at least four and possibly five games away from Celtic Park, with the possibility of only one home game, in the final Champions League qualifying round, will ensure Celtic are tested to their limit.
Two trips to the Highlands ahead of the Champions League qualifiers would be an unwelcome distraction. Maybe an occasion for the youth and fringe players.
