CELTIC could end up playing both their Champions League play-off matches at Parkhead if they draw Bulgarians Ludogorets Razgrad thanks to Pink Floyd.

One of the five teams they could face in today’s draw in Nyon are the Bulgarian dark horses

However, if they are drawn to play their home tie in the second leg they will need to move their game away from Bulgaria.

Bulgaria only has one suitable venue for Champions League matches – the Vasil Levski National Stadium in Sofia.

However, that is being used as the venue for a concert by Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters, who is performing his rock extravaganza concert The Wall Live at the end of the month.

Razgrad president Kiril Domuschiev said: “I never thought that such a thing can stop us from playing in the Champions League at home.

“There’s an option to go and play in Romania, probably at Steaua Bucharest’s stadium. There is another option too – to play both matches away.”
