Celtic’ statement/explanation on international football didn’t cut much ice with fans angered at the treatment of players.

Ryan Christie and Odsonne Edouard are both victims of testing with Neil Lennon’ squad spread far and wide over the next week ahead of a derby and then a tie against AC Milan.

The growth of international football has been an unwelcome development in recent years, halting the momentum of the domestic game with breaks in September, October and November.

Putting players out of training or matches purely through international get togethers is a new development this season with Celtic fans hit with a double blow within the space of 24 hours.

While we are constantly told that we are living in unprecedented times the growing impact of international is bound to lead to more pressure from the major clubs to curb the international calendar which now includes a third tournament, the Nations League.
