Celtic will be eager to get back to league action next week with the international break once again proving an embarrassment in terms of the Scottish national team.
A humbling in Russia seems to have not even registered with how disappointing it is to watch Scotland right now and hopefully the Bhoys will get us back to smiling next weekend against Ross County.
Those not on international duty will be working hard at the moment, then, and some of the younger players might also get their chance to help make up numbers.
Leo Hjelde – a signing in the summer – is one that has been offered the chance to step up in recent weeks and he has spoken to Celtic View about his experiences, though he admits the first-team didn’t really know who he was at first.
“I’ve trained a bit with the first-team squad. The first time was a couple of weeks ago and it was very nice.
“I got a text the day before saying I needed to be in training for the first team. That was cool.
“They were friendly but I don’t think they knew who I was at first.”
It must be a great opportunity when you get that call, and hopefully he’ll be able to keep showing who he is in the weeks to come.
