Celtic continue pre-season training ahead of confirmed games in France and the start of the league campaign. Neil Lennon spoke this week and said how important it is for the players to get used to playing behind closed doors and how over whelmed he was by the support of the fans who have renewed their season books for such an important season.
When the gates open the stadium will be will be full once again but it is so important to be in pole position when we the fans do get back into Celtic Park. Over 50,000 season tickets have been sold in these uncertain times is remarkable of how the Celtic fans continue to back the club in these uncertain times.
It will be interesting to see how the newer players like Kilmala & Soro fit in to Neil Lennon’s plans as the season progresses and hopefully we can get a look at them if the pre-season games are televised.
I have contacted the club regarding Celtic TV or other networks covering the games at the moment JP Taylor has no details but will update us when he has more information. If anyone has any information on coverage of games please let us know.
The goalkeeping position still remains a concern with only Scott Bain as the only recognised first team keeper at the club. The Foster saga lingers on with rumours and half truths and Ajer is the latest player linked with a move away this time to AC Milan, hopefully its just tabloid talk at a time when the Celtic press office are only giving them crumbs of information to write about.
These newspapers and google add parade websites are the same ones that got so much inch columns and thousands of hits out of Victor Wanyama returning to Celtic not so long ago and they will continue to peddle bullshit until they get one rumour correct and then they can tell us how they broke an exclusive while searching Twitter for their next exclusive!
