Celtic’s pre-season friendly against Wolves has been called off with the English club pulling out of their South Korea tour.

Wolves were also scheduled to play against Roma but this morning they announced that they won’t be taking part in their two matches.

The match against Celtic was scheduled for July 26 but after two matches in Japan it looks like alternative arrangements will have to be found for Brendan Rodgers’ squad.

This morning Wolves announced:

With great regret, Wolves can confirm that the club has been forced to withdraw from its pre-season fixtures and tour to South Korea next month.

The withdrawal from the scheduled matches, which were set to take place at the end of July, comes after numerous financial and logistical obligations were not met by the tour’s promoter, Stadium X/USG.

Wolves were due to play Europa League finalists AS Roma and Scottish champions Celtic, but after weeks of delays by the promotors and tickets not yet on sale for the matches, the difficult decision has been made to terminate the contract with the promoters and pull out of the tour.

A match against Roma could be one solution for Celtic with the other option being to play a local Korean side.

Apart from the matches in Japan and possibly Korea the only other pre-season match that Celtic have arranged is at home to Athletic Club of Bilbao on August 1 in the Testimonial for James Forrest.

Celtic’s non-internationalists report for pre-season training on Monday at Lennoxtown before flying to Portugal ahead of the first match, away to Yokohama F Marinos on July 19.
