Celtic fans will find out tomorrow if they’ll be able to attend Thursday’s Europa League tie away to Bayer Leverkusen.

The German side have given Celtic an allocation of 1,500 tickets but with regulations rapidly changing there are no guarantees that fans will be inside the stadium.

Across Austria, Germany and Holland regulations have been tightened up, last week Holland played a World Cup qualifier against Norway in an empty stadium.

With most Celtic fans not having the European Vaccine Passport an extra complication has been added to the trip.

Earlier this month in Budapest fans with European passports were able to buy tickets directly from Ferencvaros, it is believed that a large number of Celtic fans have already bought tickets for the home section of Thursday’s match.

It looks likely that Celtic will have to take a point from the match to keep alive their hopes of remaining in the Europa League. Real Betis are a point ahead of the hoops and at home to Ferencvaros on Thursday.
