CELTIC will use goal-line technology at Parkhead for next week’s crunch Champions League match, according to The Scottish Sun.
The Hawk-Eye system, which was used during the recent Euro 2016 in France, will now be implemented for the play-off tie versus Hapoel Be’er Sheva. It will also be used in every subsequent Champions League clash should they progress.
UEFA’s chief refereeing officer Pierluigi Collina said: “Goal-line technology and additional assistant referees complement each other perfectly.
“The main task of the AARs is not to control the goal-line and decide whether a ball has crossed it.
“Rather they are responsible for monitoring everything that is happening in the penalty area overall, aiding the main referee in making important decisions in the box.
“Now, with goal-line technology focused on the goal-line, the additional assistants can focus exclusively on the control of other incidents in the penalty area, the most crucial area of the pitch.”
The Hawk-Eye system is already in use in the English Premier League, as well as the top flights in Germany, Italy and the Netherlands.
