Celtic have been drawn against Icelandic side Stjarnan in the second qualifying round of the Champions League. The Scottish champions will have to make it through three qualifying ties to make the group stages, starting against Stjarnan next month.
The first leg of the tie will take place on either 14th or 15th of July, with the second leg taking place on either 21st or 22nd. The Hoops will be at home in the first leg as they were picked out of the draw first.
Ironically Celtic faced Icelandic opposition at the same stage of the competition last season, hammering KR Reykjavik 5-0 on aggregate. The Hoops then suffered a humiliating 6-1 third qualifying round defeat against Legia Warsaw.
However, the SPL champions were re-instated after Legia were thrown out of the competition due to fielding an eligible player. Despite being given a Champions League lifeline the Hoops threw it away by losing to Slovenian champions Maribor.
Elsewhere, former European champions Steaua Bucharest will meet Slovakia side Trencin and Malmo was paired with Zalgiris of Lithuania and Ludogorets Razgrad is at home against Moldova’s champion Milsami Orhei.
Another Champions League regular, Dinamo Zagreb, is away first against Fola Esch of Luxembourg.
