Celtic will play either Lincoln Red Imps of Gibraltar or Estonian side Flora Tallinn in the second qualifying round for the Champions League.

The away match will be first and represents Brendan Rodgers’ first ever game as Celtic manager.

The game will take place on July 12/13 with the return leg at Celtic Park a week later on July 19/20.

The dates will be confirmed on Tuesday.

Flora Tallinn will be favoured to progress from their first round encounter with Lincoln Red Imps.

They won the Estonian title by eight points last season but are struggling down in fourth in the 2016 campaign.

Lincoln are the most successful club side in the history of the Gibraltar Premier Division and have won 14 consecutive titles.

They defeated Andorran side Santa Coloma in last year’s first round before going out to Midtjylland, the former team of Celtic centre back Erik Sviatchenko.
