Brendan Rodgers' first competitive match at the helm of Celtic will see his new team take on Flora Tallinn or Lincoln Red Imps.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Celtic have been drawn to face either Flora Tallinn or Lincoln Red Imps in the second qualifying round of the Champions League.

New manager Brendan Rodgers' first competitive game in charge will see Celtic play either the champions of Estonia or Gibraltar, depending on who progresses through their first qualification round tie.

The first leg of the Scottish champions' match will take place on July 12 or 13, with the return game one week later.
