A CELTIC XI featuring many of the Hoops who aren’t away on international duty over the course of the next week will play against Dublin side Bohemians this Sunday at Dalymount Park.
With no fewer than eight Celts away with their national sides, Neil Lennon is delighted with the opportunity to retain the remaining players’ match sharpness
The manager believes it will be a useful exercise to keep the players focused and in contention for the up-coming Dundee United fixture the following weekend.
He said: “This week we have a small pool due to the international call-ups, so we will do a bit of physical work before giving them a few days off and then obviously we have the game in Dublin on Sunday.
“We have taken that game on as some of the players might need some game-time before the next run of matches and hopefully it will be a decent competitive game for them.
“It’s good for the club to take the team to Ireland as we have a lot of fans over there, so from that point of view we think that’s a positive thing as well.”
The game against Bohemians kicks-off at 3pm at Dalymount Park on Sunday and tickets priced 20euros for adults and 10euros for Senior Citizens and under-14s are on sale now at the venue or can be bought on the day of the match with the turnstiles open at 1pm.
