Midtjylland is of course where Erik Sviatchenko plays his football and he’s always wanted to return to Celtic Park – as we highlighted earlier today, amid rumours of Celtic being interested in re-signing the rugged defender.

It should be noted that theRangers quite beat Midtjylland in the Europa League qualifiers home and away so Celtic should certainly have a chance against a side probably around the level of Copenhagen, who we really should have beaten in the knock-out rounds of the Europa League the season before last, especially after that win in Rome.

The first leg at Celtic Park will take place on July 20/21, with the second leg the following week in Denmark on July 27/28.

The home leg of this UCL second qualifying round tie is part of the 2021/22 season ticket, either in person or virtually via the Pass to Paradise.
