Celtic's players returned to full contact training this week, taken by new first-team coach Gavin Strachan at Lennoxtown.

The Hoops had been working on the training pitch in a safe manner as of last week, in smaller groups of three or four in a bid to maintain social distancing rules. However the Joint Response Group from the SFA and SPFL confirmed recently that clubs could go back into full contact training with the ball as the Premiership season nears a comeback.

Loan signing Moi Elyounoussi rejoined his teammates following last season's successful spell at Parkhead while the likes of Hatem Abd Elhamed continued his return to fitness and Ismaila Soro got stuck in.

It was also one of new coach Gavin Strachan's first sessions and he immediately set about getting to grips with the players during drills in the pouring rain.

Celts head into the season - pencilled to begin on August 1 - with 10 in a row on their mind.
