Celtic boss Neil Lennon has disclosed that he is concerned about how his players will deal with the current football lockdown, the Daily Record reports.

He fears that the players will not be used the current disruption, as they are used to the life of playing football every weekend, which is of course not on the agenda at the moment.

“Our fitness team has given them individual programmes. They are used to a regimented way of life and a great life and a healthy life” Lennon said, as quoted by the Daily Record.


“A lot of them will be very frustrated”

“I’m just worried not just about their physical well-being, but their mental well-being as well. A lot of them will be very frustrated with pent-up energy and you can only do so much when training at home” he said.

The world is currently in such an odd situation that it is easy to see where Lennon is coming from. It must be difficult for players who have known nothing but playing football for years suddenly have to stop.

It will take getting used to for the Celtic players, but the club will no doubt be doing all they can to help the players through this difficult time.

Manager will be keeping in contact with players

Neil Lennon will also be keeping in contact with his players, but as he says there is only so much that he can do to deal with this unique situation.

Everyone is in the same boat now though, as both football players and the fans of the clubs are in this lockdown scenario.

Hopefully that will see everyone unite as one in a bid to defeat the global pandemic. The sooner that happens, the sooner the players can return to the football pitch, which is what everyone wants.
