CELTIC will finally discover the identity of Thursday’s Europa League opponents this morning with Riga’s meeting with Tre Fiori to re-start at 10am.

The Latvian side, who are favourites to take on Neil Lennon’s men, issued a statement on Twitter saying the game couldn’t proceed after high winds in the capital caused a floodlight to smash, as CQN reported last night.

However, after negotiations with UEFA, they now have the green light to play the match this morning and the Hoops could know their rivals around noon.

The situation was complicated by the fact the San Marino outfit had a flight booked back last night.

The match was locked at 0-0 after two lengthy delays after some 21 minutes when the decision to halt the match was taken.

But agreement has been reached – which means the two teams coming back to finish things off today.

Their statement read: “Let’s continue tomorrow … Skonto stadium Riga FC – Tre Fiori game will resume tomorrow at 10:00.”
Riga’s original statement on Twitter read: “The game will not continue tonight!

“Negotiations are currently underway with UEFA to play tomorrow!”
