Celtic have announced a pre-season friendly against Sheffield Wednesday on July 7 to complete their Welsh schedule.

That match will be the first of three from the Welsh training base that the bhoys will use from July 5-14, matches against Charlton (July 10) and Bristol City (July 14) had already been announced. All three matches will be Behind Closed Doors.

All eyes on those matches will be on the new Celtic manager and what promises to be a much changed team from the one that finished the 2020/21 season.

Celtic and Wednesday seemed on course for a mini dispute over the transfer of Liam Shaw but the friendly would suggest that that matter has been resolved.

Wednesday finished last season in bottom place in the Championship with a massive overhaul expected as they trim their costs for life in the third tier.

The three matches in Wales will be followed by a home match against Preston North End on Saturday July 17 with the first leg Champions League qualifier following in the midweek afterwards.
