‘Good draw’: Celtic fans react as Champions League draw is made

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic have found out who they will face in the first round of Champions League qualification this afternoon.

The Hoops have been drawn to face Bosnia and Herzegovina champions FK Sarajevo, with Neil Lennon’s men at home first.

The draw hasn’t been kind for Celtic.

Of all the teams they could have pulled at this stage, Sarajevo arguably represents the toughest test to negotiate.

Lennon will still fancy his side to progress, however.

The Bosnian outfit held Serie A side Atalanta to a 2-2 draw in last season’s competition but were thumped 8-0 in the second leg.

Celtic will be hoping to perform better than they did in the competition last season.

Brendan Rodgers’ team were disappointingly dumped out by AEK Athens at the third stage of qualifying.

If the Hoops are to progress to the group stages of the competition this season, they must overcome four qualifying opponents.

The first leg takes place at Celtic Park on either the 9th or 10th of July. Many supporters are hopeful of some new arrivals before the fixture.
