Alkmaar friendly in doubt


Celtic’s friendly with AZ Alkmaar on Wednedsay is in doubt with flights throughout Scotland still banned.

The Dutch side are scheduled to fly into Glasgow on Tuesday but already there are reports that all flights could be grounded until the middle of the week at least due to the Icelandic volcanic ash.

Celtic are expecting to make an announcement on the game going ahead or not on Monday as they monitor the flight conditions on a day by day basis.

Uefa will also be watching matters carefully with Barcelona due to fly to Milan on Monday ahead of their Champions League semi-final with Inter the following day.

Expecting Barcelona to travel by coach or train would be impossible however Lyon’s trip to play Bayern Munich shouldn’t be in any doubt with just 350 miles seperating the two cities.

Update, Uefa have announced that both semi finals will go ahead, if Barca are facing a coach trip to the San Siro a bet on Inter should provide extra value after they won home and away in the last two rounds of the Champions League.
