Celtic set for warm-weather break

Celtic have effectively been given permission to take a brief winter break in January after the SPFL agreed to the postponement of a fixture with Kilmarnock.

Neil Lennon's side had been due to play Killie at Celtic Park on Saturday, January 11, but that game has now been pushed back to Wednesday, January 29.

Top-flight clubs have the option to take a winter break and postpone games in the first two weeks of January, on the agreement the fixtures are then re-arranged for midweek dates later in the month.

It means that after the festive fixtures are complete - Celtic play Partick Thistle on January 1 and St Mirren on January 5 - the Parkhead side will take a 13-day breather before getting back into action on January 18 when they host Motherwell.

Last season Celtic headed to Marbella, where Lennon's side beat Steaua Bucharest in a friendly in Spain, but it remains to be seen if there are similar plans for this January.
