To no real surprise Celtic’s Champions League tie with Shakhtar onetsk will go ahead in Warsaw as planned on Wednesday.
Since Thursday evening there has been speculation that some of next week’s fixtures could be postponed or moved to different venues but those reports seem wide of the mark.
All weekend UK football fixtures were postponed- including Celtic’s home match with Livingston- but normal service is set to resume in midweek.
Tonight The Sun reports:
THE Old Firm and Hearts look set to play their European ties as planned this week.
The SPFL called off weekend fixtures at every level following the Queen’s passing.
But it’s now expected Celtic, Rangers and Hearts will all return to action in the coming days.
Celtic can continue their preparations as normal for the match against Shakhtar which could be pivotal to their prospects of reaching the knock-out stage of the competition.
A 4-1 win away to RB Leipzig by the Ukrainian champions has opened the group right up with Marcus Rose taking over as manager of Leipzig.
If Shakhtar beat Celtic it would give them a six point cushion after two points but after their performance at home to Real Madrid Ange Postecoglou’s side will be confident of taking something from the match.
