Celtic are to play two home friendlies after a tough tour to France.

Celtic have announced two pre-season friendly matches at Celtic Park.

Neil Lennon’s side will play Ross County on Sunday (KO: 1pm) and Hibernian on Monday (KO: 1.30pm).

Both matches will be played behind closed doors.

Celtic had hoped to play Dundalk on Saturday but the match was scuppered by Irish quarantine restrictions.

The Scottish champions open the defence of their title against Hamilton at home on Sunday, August 2. They are still looking for their first pre-season win after a tough tour to France which saw them draw with Nice and lose to Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain.

Celtic say the friendlies with County and Hibs will be test games for the ‘Pass To Paradise’, the virtual element of the 2020/21 season ticket, which allows fans to watch the games online.
