Video: The impressive Robins High Performance Centre, as Callum McGregor praises Celtic’s young guns

Celtic’s match last night against Bristol City was played at the English Championship side’s new training facility, the Robins High Performance Centre and while there’s still clearly work taking place it certainly looks an impressive footballing environment for elite sports.

Here’s a video of the facility coming together which is well worth a watch.

Meanwhile Celtic captain (elect) Callum McGregor was speaking to Celtic TV after the 0-0 draw against Bristol City and declared himself satisfied with what the squad has achieved in terms of building up for the important action starting next Tuesday.

“It’s been a valuable week for us, we had a lot of younger guys down with us, you’re seeing a lot of them on the pitch tonight and they’re giving everything, trying to get to the level,” Callum said. “We were really positive, we were doing the things that the manager has asked us to do.”

The midfielder, who is sure to be named as the official replacement for Scott Brown as Celtic captain shorty, was all of praise for the younger players who have made a decent impression in the games in South Wales and last night in the South West of England.

“I think Dane was outstanding when he came on, Monty did well again, young Moff getting another runout, so for the young kids it’s brilliant – they just need to keep doing it, keep sticking with it and trying to get better every day and keep trying to push the squad because of the numbers and where we’re at, there’s chances for them.

“I thought the match was really good. In the first half, I thought we controlled the game.

“We were really positive, we were doing the things that the manager has asked us to do, we had loads of rotation, we were always trying to find the spare man, we had a little bit of problem solving on the pitch and we were trying to take the ball forward through the thirds of the pitch.

“Bristol were our box once in the first half, I think, so it’s just about trying to do all of those things, trying to get better at them. The only negative from that tonight really, is losing a couple of boys to injury.”
