Craig Gordon reveals the two biggest advantages of Celtic's Gran Canaria trip

Celtic FC Stands 2

The Bhoys goalkeeper has been discussing his side's winter break exploits.

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has outlined two key reasons why the SPL champions' trip to Gran Canaria will be beneficial to their season.

Firstly, according to the shot stopper, injured players will be able to get some some warm-weather training under their belt, speeding up their recovery.

And, secondly, Gordon believes the training camp is proving a useful bonding excercise for the Celtic squad.

“It’s good to get away and I think it’ll help us. It’ll help the injured boys as well to get some warm-weather training under their belt and that could speed their recovery up and get them back in the team," the goalkeeper told Celtic's official website.

“I think it’s coming at just the right point for us and when we go back we’ll have a lot of hard work to do and a lot of games to play.

"When you’re living with people day in, day out and have all your meals together, it does bond the team together and I’m sure we can use that when we go back to hopefully win a few games."
