A Celtic XI will take on East Kilbride on Wednesday June 27.

The fixture has become something of a tradition in recent seasons with the K-Park providing home fixtures for Celtic’s Ladies team.

With Brendan Rodgers’ first team squad, and some younger players, in Austria at the time of the match it is likely to be a very youthful side that takes on the Lowland League outfit.

Joe Thomson has joined the list of summer departures with the midfielder following Sam Wardrop, Jamie Lindsay and Jamie McCart into the Championship after signing for Dunfermline.

In last season’s friendly match between the two clubs Kundai Benyu made a scoring debut as Celtic won 3-1.

Former Celt Billy Stark was in charge of East Kilbride last season but has moved on to take charge of the Scotland u-19 squad with former Albion Rovers boss Brian Kerr appointed as Stark’s replacement.
