Celtic are at the forefront of trying to get our game back to a place where we can get players back on the park.
There have been many committees set up in a bid to find the best way forward for Scottish football. While other leagues restart, their templates won’t automatically apply to Scottish football and we must forge our own path.
Health and safety expert Stuart Cameron is being tasked with looking at the best outcome for Scottish football through the crisis.
The expert spoke to RecordSport, revealing he’s spoken to several clubs including Celtic and Aberdeen.
“It’s unprecedented in many aspects but over the last few months we’ve looked at ways to accelerate an action plan which is workable within football and we are now ready to roll it out.
“We have been liaising with a number of clubs including Celtic and Aberdeen who are looking at our proposals with a view to reopening our game.
“It’s about sanitising every element within football both in training and games and making it as practical as possible. Footballers and everyone who works within a club and those providing a function within stadiums need to have the confidence that the environment is a safe one.
“The health and safety plan works alongside the government guidelines and we will have more information on those this week.”
Unless told otherwise, Celtic are due to start training in staggered groups at Lennoxtown in mid-June. The club has no idea when they’re first competitive game will be. It could be qualifiers for the Champions League, it could be the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.
We await to hear what the Government guidelines will be this week as Scotland slowly come out of full lockdown. Things ease a bit on Thursday but we have a long way to go before we’re back to any kind of normal.
