What channel is Celtic v Everton on? Kick-off time change, TV details, team news for Sydney Super Cup clash

Celtic play their second friendly in Australia as part of the Sydney Super Cup in the early hours of Sunday morning when they face Premier League side Everton.

The Scottish champions lost 2-1 to Sydney FC on Thursday with defender Anthony Ralston admitting disappointment of not being able to record a better result in front of the club’s fans who had attended. The Scotland international said: “We wanted to put on a show. Not just for the fans who live here and get up at three in the morning to watch us when there are league games, but also for the travelling fans here.”

Next up is Frank Lampard’s Toffees. Everton are struggling in the Premier League and sit one place and one point above the relegation zone. Celtic boss Postecoglou has been linked as a possible replacement should Lampard depart. Former Blues star Pat Nevin spoke recently of the Australian not being the right fit just now.
