Celtic Get Green Light From Scottish Government To Travel To France

Celtic will be able to travel to France for pre-season friendlies after a key Scottish Government announcement.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has approved travel to 57 countries without the need to self-isolate upon a return to Scotland. One of the privileged nations is France, where the Hoops will be undertaking a pre-season tournament in Lyon. It is a great relief for Neil Lennon and his team that these matches can now go ahead without the need to quarantine on their return to Glasgow.

Celtic take on Lyon and Nice before travelling to the French capital to face PSG on 21 July.

The Bhoys were in a state of limbo yesterday with no official confirmation of whether they could head across the Channel next week or not. However, the matter has now been resolved and the Celts can look forward to building upon the work currently being conducted at the training camp in Leicester.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
