CELTIC have confirmed the second leg of their Champions League second round qualifier against Nomme Kalju will take place at the 15,000-capacity Estonian National stadium on July 30.

The European minnows’ home ground can hold only 700 and the tie has been moved to a more suitable venue to facilitate the expected demands from the fans to watch the action.

Neil Lennon’s men booked their spot in the next stage with a 5-2 aggregate victory over Bosnian double winner FK Sarajevo – with goals from Mikey Johnston, Odsonne Edouard and Scott Sinclair helping them to a 3-1 away triumph last week which was followed up with a 2-1 success in Glasgow last night with Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor on target.

The first leg against the Estonians is at Parkhead on Wednesday.

Boss Lennon is still on the look-out for new players, as CQN reported this morning, and the club need to submit their Champions League squad by midnight this evening. They can also use a wild card option and register any new player 24 hours before the opening tie.
