At the end of last season, Celtic Park witnessed a large exodus of outgoing players, not to mention losing a crown jewel like Kieran Tierney on the last day of the English transfer window to Arsenal.
Neil Lennon had a massive task on his hands before a ball was kicked or any competition even started. It is early days but it is looking like Lennon and backroom staff have recruited well. Scott Brown feels a bit more optimistic and claims he is playing with one the best ever Celtic squads he has been involved in.
When asked by Celtic TV the strength of this new squad compared to others the Celtic captain had this to say:
“It’s definitely up there. We made some great signings in the last couple of days in the window. “We have strengthened in positions the manager felt needed strengthening. We have a huge run-in until Christmas time until the next break for everyone.”
“Everyone finds it hard after Europa League games to go again on Sunday but we have a huge squad and the manager will use it when he feels he needs to use it and we are looking forward to every single game.”
Celtic will play Kilmarnock tomorrow at Paradise and Brown will look to captain his team to a sixth straight win of the new SPFL season. Neil Lennon may be forced to start playing some fringe players as the games start to pile up, then fans can see if Brown’s claim is true.
Celtic only travelled back from France Friday after a fine performance and their first point of the new Europa League campaign.
