Announcement expected on Celtic’s Dublin date

An announcement is expected in the next couple of days for Celtic to play Wolves at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday July 29.

With less than one month’s notice the two clubs have had to cancel plans to play in South Korea on July 26 which has left gaps in their pre-season plans.

Celtic play two matches in Japan on July 19 and 22 then have nothing until the James Forrest Testimonial on August 1, their final outing before the SPFL Premiership opener at home to Ross County on August 5.

A change of opponent in South Korea was considered but it now seems that an alternative venue three days later is the best option.

Celtic haven’t played a full strength team in Dublin since a 2016 Champions Cup tie against Barcelona, again soon after Brendan Rodgers had taken over as manager.

With accommodation such an issue it seems like Celtic will have to rely on local fans, Dublin can be expensive at the best of times but it seems that the last weekend in July isn’t the best of times to book up for with three weeks notice.
