Celtic v Wolves: Team news, KO time and where to watch

Celtic are in Dublin for this afternoonโ€™s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The game marks a week until Brendan Rodgers and his team face Ross County in the Premiership opener at Celtic Park so expect to see a strong team.

The Premier League side were due to meet Rodgersโ€™ team in South Korea but had to re-arrange in the Irish capital after the tour organisers failed to meet their obligations. Accordingly, there is now an opportunity for Celtic to play in Ireland and allow fans that make the regular journey to Paradise, the opportunity to watch their team on their doorstep.

Team News

New signing Maik Nawrocki has not travelled owing to a slight injury. Cameron Carter-Vickers is not expected to play a part owing to easing his way back to fitness in his recovery from surgery. Elsewhere, Marco Tilio is still sidelined with an injury. Alistair Johnston is injured, Tony Ralston has returned to training but remains to be seen whether he is fit to play.

New signings Kwon Hyeok-Kyu and Yang Hyun-jun have travelled and could get the chance to play their part in the friendly. Other than that, expect a strong team from Brendan that could very well be the XI that starts against County next weekend.

Kick Off Time

The game at the Aviva Stadium will kick off at 2pm (Celtic Park time). Itโ€™s a friendly match so donโ€™t expect to see any players diving to try to con the referee into awarding a penalty.

Where to Watch

The game on will be shown live on Celtic TV for subscribers. The game will also be available on Viaplay Sports 1 for subscribers with coverage from Dublin beginning at 1:55pm.
