Celtic players could be given early wind-up if title is secured soon

Joe Ledley says that some Celtic players could be given an early finish to the season if they can soon secure the Scottish Premier League title.

The Hoops are 18 points clear of second-placed Motherwell and if they can quickly lock-in the trophy, some of Neil Lennon's charges will be given an early offseason.

"We've looked at the possibility of some players finishing early if we can win the league quickly. We're only going to have a short break as it stands - three weeks, I think - and it's important as pro footballers to have rest," said the Wales international.

"It's not ideal just to have three weeks off and then get right back into it again with crucial qualifiers early in the next season.

"We've played 45 games already so I think it would be a good idea to rest people.

"Rest is key with the amount of games we'll have played in this campaign.

"We proved it again on Saturday against Dundee United.

"With a couple of players rested, the manager changed the team around and we were fresh and that is a key element in football now - recovery.

"We want to wrap the league title up as soon as we possibly can and we have to work as hard as we can, go out there and play the best football we can."
