    Celtic set for trio of pre-season matches in Austria

    By: Newsroom Staff on 14 Jun, 2018 09:01

  • BRENDAN Rodgers’ Double Treble winners will play three friendly matches in Austria as part of their pre-season schedule, ahead of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers next month.

    The first of those games is against SK Vorwarts Steyr on Wednesday, June 27 (KO: 5.30pm Celtic Park time) at the Life Radio Arena in Steyr. Last season SK Vorwarts Steyr won promotion to the second tier of Austrian football.

    Three days later, on Saturday, June 30, Celtic take on Bohemians 1905 at the Huber Arena in the Austrian town of Wels (KO: 2pm).

    It will be a clash of the green and whites as the Prague-based side, who finished seventh in the Czech top division last season, play in green and white stripes. Their chairman is now Antonín Panenka, famous for his audacious chipped penalty to win the 1976 European Championships for Czechoslovakia, a technique replicated by Moussa Dembele in last season’s 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final victory over Rangers at Hampden.

    The third pre-season match in Austria takes place on Tuesday, July 3 at the Stallinger Financial Planning Arena in Rohrbach (KO: 4.30pm), when the Hoops take on Sparta Prague, who finished fifth in last season’s Czech league.

    Brendan Rodgers’ side will also return to Dublin this season for a friendly against Shamrock Rovers on Saturday, July 7 at the Tallaght Stadium (KO: 3pm).
