Celtic 'in an exciting place' ahead of Livingston trip - Hart

Joe Hart says Celtic aren't concerned that Brendan Rodgers won't be in the dug out for Sunday's game against Livingston.

The goalkeeper says the break has been positive for the Glasgow side as it's allowed them to get key members of the squad back fit and firing.

"We have got to keep everyone is as good a condition as we possibly can," Hart said.

"Having the strongest squad possible and look to attack every game. Getting a few people back fit, I feel we're in a good spot.

"You want your manager available but he has had more than long enough to get his message across and convey what he wants from us.

"He has got great coaching staff that we all feel comfortable with. There is no doubt we want Brendan in the dug out with us but he is going to do everything he can to help us.

"We won't have Brendan in the dug out but John [Kennedy] will step in. He is an exceptional coach, he has definitely got managerial skills from learning from great managers in the past and we're looking forward to seeing what he's got.

"In every single position we're strong when people are fit and we are getting towards that point and that is an exciting place to be with such a potentially exciting end to the season."
