Celtic have been drawn in Group E in the Europa League alongside Lazio, Rennes (who we played in the rare-season friendly last month) and Romanian Champions Cluj who put Celtic out of the Champions League.

Celtic have been drawn in Group E in the Europa League alongside Lazio, Rennes (who we played in the rare-season friendly last month) and Romanian Champions Cluj who put Celtic out of the Champions League.

Celtic are the Pot 2 side with Italian giants Lazio coming out of Pot 1,  French Cup winners Rennes from Pot 3 and Cluj from the 4th Pot. Celtic played Rennes in the Europa League in 2011, drawing 1-1 in Brittany before winning 3-1 at Celtic Park. The Cluj side won 4-3 at Celtic Park recently after the sides drew 1-1 in Romania.

The Hoops booked their place in fine style in Stockholm last night, defeating the Swedish Champions 4-1 on the night and 6-1 on aggregate.

Celtic have qualified from the Europa League Group stages in the previous two seasons before losing to Zenit St Petersburg and then Valencia in the knock-out rounds.

The six Group stage games will take place on the following dates and the details on who we’ll play and when, plus the kick-off times (Europa League has two kick-off times, the 6pm and 8pm starts) and we’ll have this information on The Celtic Star as soon as possible, with UEFA stating that this information will be available 2 hours after the draw ceremony concludes.
