Celtic are coming to Dublin to play Shamrock Rovers this summer
The Scottish treble-winners will face SSE Airtricity League opposition at Tallaght Stadium on 7 July.

SHAMROCK ROVERS WILL host Celtic in a friendly at Tallaght Stadium, it has been announced.

The Glasgow club, who wrapped up a domestic ‘double-treble’ on Saturday before facing a Republic of Ireland XI in Scott Brown’s testimonial yesterday, are coming to Dublin to play Rovers on 7 July (3pm kick-off).

Brendan Rodgers’ side will use the game as preparation for their Champions League qualifiers.

Rovers, meanwhile, are likely to field a second-string team as the fixture is scheduled for a day after their SSE Airtricity League Premier Division meeting with Cork City at Turner’s Cross.

The sides played in a similar game last summer, with Celtic strolling to a 9-0 victory.
