Meanwhile Dundalk will host Norwegian champions Molde or KuPS of Finland in the second qualifying round of Champions League if they triumph away from home against Slovenian side Celje.

Dundalk were drawn against Celje yesterday in a game that is likely to take place at a neutral venue in Hungary or Greece.

Neil Lennon’s Celtic side have been drawn at home to play Hungarian champions Ferencvaros or Swedish title winners Djurgardens, if they manage to win their opening game against KR Reykjavik.
