GREIG ROBERTSON spent a fascinating 18 years at the Celtic Academy between 2003 - 2021, working in close quarters with a number of highly regarded club coaches such as Tommy Burns, Brendan Rodgers and John Kennedy.
In nearly two decades within the Academy he played a part in the development of some of Celtic's best known graduates such as Kieran Tierney, James Forrest and current club captain Callum McGregor, and more recently has guided the progress of the latest batch of exciting talent to emerge from Lennoxtown, including Ben Doak, Dane Murray and of course Karamoko Dembele.
You don't spend that amount of time with elite level players if you yourself aren't an elite level coach and during his time at Celtic Grieg gained his UEFA Pro Licence as well as a Masters in Performance Coaching.
His talents have now taken him to the role of Director of Coaching at Boston Bolts in the US, where he kindly gave up over an hour of his time to discuss his Celtic journey with The Celtic Exchange.
It's an entertaining, enjoyable and insightful discussion on what goes on behind the scenes at Lennoxtown and on what it really takes to make it as a young footballer at Celtic.
This is a must listen for fans of Celtic, and for sports fans in general. Enjoy!
