CARSON, Calif. -- Midfielder Sacha Kljestan left the U.S. national team training camp to train for a week with Scottish Premier League champion Glasgow Celtic.

Kljestan left Los Angeles on Thursday and was due to arrive in Scotland on Friday, U.S. team spokesman Michael Kammarman said.

The 23-year-old, a member of last year's Olympic team, is to return in time for a Jan. 24 exhibition game against Sweden.
