  • CELTIC kick off their European trail this evening (Tuesday) against Bosnia and Herzegovinian outfit FK Sarajevo in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.  

    Hoops new Bhoy, Boli Bolingoli, starts on the left side of defence, and lines up alongside Nir Bitton, Jozo Simunovic and Kris Ajer. Mikey Johnston retains his place in Neil Lennon’s starting XI on the left flank, with James Forrest taking his place on the opposite side.

    Ryan Christie, Callum McGregor and captain Scott Brown occupy central roles, while the Scottish champions’ Treble Treble matchwinner Odsonne Edouard leads the line.

    Neil Lennon’s men enter tonight’s fixture following a successful pre-season summer camp in Austria and Switzerland, and are targeting a positive first-leg result in their first competitive game of the 2019/20 campaign. The return leg of the tie takes place at Paradise next week, on Wednesday, July 17.

    Kick-off at the Olympic Stadium, Sarajevo is 6:45pm (Celtic Park time). All the pre-match build-up and live match up-dates will be available on the official Celtic Twitter: @CelticFC

    CELTIC: Bain; Ajer, Simunovic, Bitton, Bolingoli; Brown, McGregor, Forrest, Christie, Johnston; Edouard.
    Subs: Gordon, Ralston, Julien, Hayes, Morgan, Sinclair, Griffiths
