Fixtures are out and the management team are in-situ at Bobbylennoxtown; the air of anticipation for a new chapter in a 126-year-old story lies heavy over Celtic supporters. I wish we were starting tomorrow.
If you are a Celtic player, what would your overbearing sentiment be today? If it was me, looking at photos of those two white-shirted fitness freaks at the Training Centre today, I’d be tempted to get out for a run, before the real business starts next week.
There are only a few things a manager can do in his first few days in charge of a new squad but setting standards for fitness and training are two clear examples. Monitoring is not just about stepping on the scales anymore, the players will have their body fat, glycogen levels and heart beats documented from when they get back and throughout the season thereafter. With benchmarks for all, as well as performances. I’m feeling tired even thinking about it.
