Football is rightly on hold for now but Tait’s been keeping fit with the help of Motherwell’s fitness expert Andy Boles. Searching for rays of light is also key for the full-back.

“This week I’ve been following Andy’s programme,” said Tait on the club’s Twitter. “It’s been difficult to come and train on your own. At the end of the day we’re professionals and we’re still getting paid to do our jobs.

“I think it’s very important for us to stay fit and be ready for whenever we play football matches. I’ve been trying to keep busy, getting as much fitness into my legs and lungs as I can.

“It’s trying to find the positives in a time like this. There are some people in the world who are really struggling with this virus and it’s important to think of the positives we have at the minute.”

Long wait continues

As the country continues to up its measures in the fight against Covid-19, the wait for football seemingly gets larger. Who knows when the sport will return globally.

The A-League in Australia has finally been called off, meaning all professional leagues worldwide are on standby. These are truly unprecedented times.

Tait’s looking for positives as he, like many others in his position, try to keep fit for when football returns.
