New defender Marvin Compper is relishing training with his new team-mates at Celtic.

The 32-year-old German arrived in a £1m deal from RB Leipzig last month and is currently involved at their winter training camp in Dubai.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment where I could join up with my team-mates as our winter break back in Germany started on 17 December, so I’ve had a couple of weeks off,” Compper told Celtic TV, reports BBC Scotland. “But I couldn’t wait to get going. The boys are fantastic and it’s an easy bunch to join in with.

“My first training session here in Dubai was intense but these kind of intense sessions are the best as during the season there is no time for it,” he added. “Now we can work on the details. So it’s been a nice introduction and now we will go on from here.”

The Hoops are next in competitive action when hosting Championship strugglers Brechin City in the Scottish Cup fourth round on Saturday-week.
