Police Scotland instructions meant Celtic couldn’t play Ferencvaros at home on matchday four due to the Cop26 event in Glasgow taking place then.

It meant the match was rescheduled for matchday three, but the game was moved to the Tuesday over fears of having both Celtic and Rangers playing at home on the same evening, with Rangers due to face Brondby on Thursday.

With Uefa wishing to avoid a clash with Champions League fixtures in the evening, the match was scheduled for an afternoon kick-off.

Despite the awkward time, Celtic fans still turned up to the European encounter in their droves to cheer Ange Postecoglou’s team on.
