Nir Bitton has announced 14 days quarantine and appears to be heading home to Israel.

This time last week the midfielder was preparing for a Glasgow derby with a Scotland v Israel Euro 2020 play-off scheduled for next Thursday. All of that has been knocked for six with no sign of a resumption.

Celtic’s players left Lennoxtown last Friday with no-one able to estimate when they will next be back together.

Tom Rogic and Daniel Arzani have already returned to Australia with Celtic able to monitor the fitness of their players through unprecedented times.

During the summer and January break there are well planned schedules to get players back to peak fitness but with o known return date there is no tailored fitness programme to follow.
