NEIL LENNON’S Celtic stars are scheduled to undergo coronavirus testing today ahead of their return to training 24 hours later.
The Hoops hierarchy have hired an external security firm to ensure all protocols are followed to the strictest letter.
Players are banned from entering the training ground building at Lennoxtown and security guards are expected to patrol the perimeter to ensure maximum privacy.
The squad members have been given a specific time for their test and must arrive separately in their own transport, according to media reports.
Results should be available within half-an-hour and everyone given the all-clear can start training tomorrow in preparation for the scheduled August 1 start to the Premiership – and the historic tilt at 10 successive crowns.
Lennon has also admitted the club may opt to go abroad for some pre-season work before the big kick-off.
The champions were last in action on March 7 when they beat St Mirren 5-0 in the east end of Glasgow with Leigh Griffiths claiming a hat-trick and Odsonne Edouard, with his 28th strike of the term, and Callum McGregor (penalty) adding the others.
