CELTIC'S Europa Conference League opponents Bodo/Glimt have revealed plans to fly out for a training camp.

The Norwegian club are hopeful of leaving their country in favour of a warm weather venue in the preparations for the play-off stage of the competition.

Club chiefs are desperate to ramp up the training in the lead up to the Euro showdown with the domestic league having finished in mid-December.

There will be just more than two months between their final league fixture and the match against Celtic at Parkhead on February 17 before a return leg the next week.

Therefore Frode Thomassen is planning the training camp abroad despite fears over the rising number of Omicron cases worldwide.

Club general manager Thomassen, as reported by the Daily Record, said: "We have to start back in pre-season three to four weeks before the match against Celtic.

"We will definitely leave the country if possible. We have a clear desire for that."

It comes after the club decided to travel to Andalusia in Spain last season for a 39-day camp despite advice from the FA and government.

We told previously how Celtic have scrapped any plans for a warm weather training break.

Ange Postecoglou commented on the matter: "Yeah. We will do our work here. It makes sense.

"We have to use our time wisely and not put unnecessary risk on our players or on the club.

"It’s valuable time to get the team up and ready for the second part of the year and it makes sense to stay here."
