Video: Celtic train at Lennoxtown ahead of Glasgow Derby

Celtic have released more footage of the Bhoys training up at our Lennoxtown Headquarters, after posting one earlier in the week for the fans to enjoy. There was noticeable absentees in that earlier one, with Reo Hatate, Aaron Mooy and Greg Taylor missing in action as the manager took the lads through their paces this week.

This latest one shows Mooy and Taylor in the mix, but the absence of Reo Hatate is palpable and as Ange Postecoglou has alread stated today, the wonderful midfield playmaker will miss out on this Glasgow Derby match. It is definitely a miss not having a player of that class and quality in our starting line-up. But it does give others an opportunity to become the hero this time around.

With Tomoki Iwata, Matt O’Riley and David Turnbull waiting in the wings, there is a plethora of talented midfielder that Ange Postecoglou has at his disposal. It is in situations such as this that the merits of a strong squad depth really comes into sharp focus. It is, after all, the business end of the campaign and there is glory at the end of the road!

Tomorrow’s game represents another chance for the Hoops to blow the much peddled assertion that the gap isn’t that significant out the water completely. The media and ex-Ibrox players have been out in force lately saying how the League Cup Final was close because the scoreline was 2-1. We should’ve ran up a cricket score that day and they know it. Time we put on the style again inside a Parkhead that will be free of away fans into the bargain.

Lets give them something to gloat about this time Bhoys!

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.

  1. Fed up old co players Trying to say the gap is nothing and getting smaller well it’s league trophy room we won on a pitch no final should be played on celtic fast passing football was threatened by this pitch I know celtic Park hasn’t been it’s best cause of wet winter it gets played on every second qeek hampden is not no money is put into that pitch at celtic Park it will be well water before and at galftime and that will benefit our style of play and our opponent have to win so they can’t defend they have to come out we have been up against hard bumpy pitches starks park was dry bumpy that’s why our passing went astray so if our opponents come to press celtic we will pass through them or go over them either way we will win but angi will want to show people who’s the top team in spl and by a wide margin
