Celtic captain Scott Brown has lauded the training he and the rest of the Bhoys squad have been put through this summer under new manager Brendan Rodgers, in an interview with Sky Sports.

Rodgers has often been credited for employing forward thinking training and tactics and each of the clubs he has managed in the past, especially at Swansea City and at Liverpool.

Now it is the Bhoys who are set to benefit from his management, and the Northern Irishman is set to unleash his side on a Scottish Premiership once again boasting the Old Firm after Rangers' return to the top flight after a four year absence.

"Training has been exceptional, he is a great manager to work under, what he has done for Liverpool and Swansea, the way they play, the great style of football and we are trying to get that at Celtic Park," Brown told Sky Sports.

"We still have a long way to go but it has been an interesting start to the season, only six or seven weeks into it and everyone seems to be enjoying it."

Given Brown's comments, it could be that Rodgers' sends out an efficient and skilful possession-based Celtic side that sweeps aside their league opposition even more efficiently than before, and importantly, could help them in their European adventures this season, and moving forward.

Brown was also quick to point to two new arrivals at the club who could go on to have a big impact for Celtic, with one being hugely experienced and another a promising talent who could shine in the coming season.

"He has strengthened the back already," Brown added. "Bringing big Kolo [Toure] in and our strike force, with Moussa [Dembele] coming in as well, we have brought a couple of good players in and hopefully that strengthens the squad."
