“Pre-season has been normal, really. It’s been hard work as always.

“Last season, I had a really long season. After the season finished with Celtic, I had international matches to be involved in. I then had two weeks of rest and came back here.

“I’m try to work gradually but also hard to make sure I’m ready. I’m taking my time because my maximum condition will be ready for the beginning of the season. I’m working with my tempo and rhythm to get ready.”
