Unlike the Champions League which has given exclusive rights to the Play Off round to BT Sport the Europa League leaves television rights up to individual clubs.
Celtic TV screened last week’s defeat against Cluj and will be hoping for better luck this week with fans favourite Tom Boyd on co-commentary.

Numerous Scottish media outlets were outraged at the weekend as they heard second hand accounts of the former Celtic skipper criticise John Beaton for failing to award Celtic a penalty for a clear hand-ball from a Mikey Johnston shot.
The storm over Boyd’s comments have taken all mainstream attention away from Beaton who will be in charge of Saturday’s match between Ross County and Livingston. The match officials for the Celtic v AIK game come from Hungary.
Tomorrow’s match kicks off at 7.45pm with Hatem Abd Elhamed the main injury doubt for Neil Lennon.
