    Celtic are looking to return to Dubai in January for some warm weather training for the fifth year running.


    Although there is no winter break this year Video Celts understands that the club is looking to fly out straight after the Glasgow derby on January 2 for a week before returning for the home match against Hibs on January 11. It seems from Leenne Dempster’s tweet the Hibs match was put back two days at Celtic’s request.

    After trips to Turkey and Gran Canaria under Ronny Deila new manager Brendan Rodgers insisted on the top quality facilities in Dubai which allowed players to holiday with their family then get in a solid week of training. Despite the cash on offer from playing a friendly while in the Emirate Rodgers insisted on training only.

    With just nine days between fixtures there won’t be any family element this year but after a gruelling schedule of nine matches from facing AC Milan on Thursday through to the Ibrox clash the break will be welcomed by all.

    Training in Dubai has been credited with playing a big part in Celtic’s success of the last few seasons, after losing the Glasgow derby last December Neil Lennon’s squad returned to a run of 28 points from 10 matches that clinched a ninth title while also progressing to the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.

    Lose any more games between now and the end of the year and your January break will be in Skegness.

    Badly needing refurbished Caravans and pot noodles for lunch.

    If it helps get the 10. Then I think it's got to be worth a try.

    They should be treating the huns to a wee mid season break to Dubai

    I don't get this whole fascination with Dubai ? Folk making out it made our season last year, I don't get it at all. The huns collapsed and that's why we won the league.
    Why is the training in Dubai so much better than Lenoxtown, is Lennoxtown not fit for purpose ?

    A new lounge with a brand new karaoke system and a wee jaunt of to the desert for few days will turn our season round no bother, big pistol pete had this up his sleeve all along the crafty git.

    If we will be trailing the huns by 15 points by then send them to Siberia.

    I suspect it is as much psychological as anything else. Being able to train outdoors, in nice weather, with some sunshine and blue skies, getting some natural vitamin d, will likely be a boost to their mental wellbeing. Why Dubai specifically I'm not sure, other than it seems to have had an impact in previous years so why not stick with what you know.

    If the annual winter trip doesn’t save our season nothing will
