Celtic captain Scott Brown has vowed that Celtic will learn from the pain of the recent 2-1 loss to Rangers, to make sure that it won’t happen again.
The Hoops skipper, in Dubai for Celtic’s training camp, delivered a two-word verdict on the loss, calling it ‘very disappointing’. However, he has disclosed that the team are working hard in Dubai to make sure that there is no repeat of that result.
“It was very disappointing, but now we’ve had time to look at it back and figure out how we’re going to play in the next games, figure out what we’re going to do” Brown said, as reported by the Herald.
“That’s what we’re working on”
“That’s what we’re working on this week, how we’re going to do that. Now it’s just about looking forward.”
Brown’s comments are certainly intriguing, and you would expect nothing less from the Hoops captain. He is not the sort of player who looks for excuses. To be fair to him, he hasn’t had any.
The most interesting part of Brown’s comments are when he discusses what the Hoops have been working on during the Dubai training sessions.
Neil Lennon seems to be putting great though into making sure that his team are well-prepared ahead of the next Glasgow derby, which is scheduled to be in March.
Preparations seem to be in place to avoid repeat
Celtic have struggled in the last two derbies against Rangers, but it looks like preparations are already being made to make sure that doesn’t happen again this season.
Celtic face some big games when they return to action after the winter break. The games against Copenhagen in the Europa League should not be forgotten about.
However, the matches against Rangers could play a massive part in determining how the title race goes in the second-half of the season. It is a good sign that Celtic seem to be working on those games already.
