The Italian powerhouse trained in Milngavie on Monday morning, ahead of Tuesday's Champions League meeting at Parkhead, which attracted plenty of attention from the Scottish media who saw it as a ploy to get inside the heads of the Hoops.
But Conte has dismissed that notion, stating that it was simply a matter of finding somewhere to have a run prior to a crunch match.
"It was only through the Italian press that I learned of the astonishment about this here in Scotland," said Conte.
"I found some of the criticism strange. The choice was simply a technical one. The clubs reached an agreement, we needed a training pitch with two sets of goalposts so, as far as I was concerned, that was it."
