Video: Celtic on the move in Japan

Celtic are on the move in Japan and the club’s official media team have been posting updates to the supporters of their excursions across the Asian country. After being in Yokohama to take on Yokohama F. Marinos, the team and their entourage now head for Osaka where they will take on Yokohama’s foes, Gamba Osaka.

Travelling by the ‘Bullet Train’, the Hoops are experiencing the fastest public transport service anywhere on the planet and has been in circulation since 1964, in which it was designed for the Olympics that year. Now Brendan Rodgers and his men will have the unique opportunity to experience this mode of transport.

The Bhoys will be travelling to Osaka at speeds of up to 374 mph! Ordinarily, if you take this trip by road in a bus or car etc. it will take six hours, but the one they have embarked upon today will take just two hours! It’s a remarkable difference and one that should serve our tired players well as they head onto the next leg of their journey.

The match against Gamba Osaka will take place this coming Saturday, with the game scheduled for 11am Celtic Park time. You can watch all the action live on Saturday morning via Celtic TV as the manager and his team try to improve on their first match in Japan which ended in a 6-4 defeat.

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
