Green: There's a greater hunger this time round


Summer Green senses a stronger hunger around the Celtic camp than what she saw when she first arrived back in January, as she targets another strong start to the league campaign, following the voided 2020 season.

The winger joined the ranks at Celtic in the winter making an impact in the four games plates before football crashed to a standstill, and with what is almost like a second chance at a start to her Celtic career, Green is more than ready for football to finally return.

“I feel like there’s more of a hunger now to get going,” Green began. 

“We felt like it was cut out from under us, as every other team does, but the atmosphere is good. Regardless of who we’re playing, we’ll go in with the same mentality as the start of the year, but it’s probably even more so, as everyone is aggravated and ready to go and play.”

The potent attacker registered two goals in four games back in February and March as she staked her claim as a mainstay in Celtic’s front line, and despite the sudden end to proceedings, she looks upon those few weeks as a “sneak peek” to the Scottish game and an opportunity to feel more prepared this time round. 

“It set the tempo and my mindset of the idea of what we do, who we play, the types of competition we’ll face, so it was nice and almost like a sneak peek, which is good,” she said.

“I hope I can pick up from where I left off, as long as the body holds up! It’s been good to get some preseason games and get the run out, but I’m looking forward to it and hoping I can come out and do the same again.

“Being back with everyone has been awesome, mentally and physically it takes a toll to be away from a team and not train day in, day out, but it’s been really exciting.

“Everyone looks great and ready to go, so it’s just been the waiting game now,” she added.

Celtic begin the 2020/2021 season away to Glasgow City on Sunday, 18 October in a 4:10pm kick-off. The game is live on BBC Alba.
