HOOPS GEAR UP FOR EURO TESTS

0

CELTIC could face Estonians Nomme Kalju or Shkendija, of North Macedonia, if they beat FK Sarajevo to reach the Champions League second qualifying round.

Neil Lennon’s side kick off their bid for the group stages against the Bosnians on July 9/10 at Parkhead.

And the Hoops boss may turn to Jonny Hayes for advice if his side faces Shkendija.

The Republic of Ireland winger was part of the Aberdeen side which claimed a 1-1 Europa League draw in Tetovo in 2015 as Pittodrie boss Derek McInnes’ outfit overcame the Macedonians on away goals.

Kalju have a familiar face in their ranks having recently signed former St Mirren winger Sander Puri. The 31-year-old forward made the first of three appearances for the Buddies against Lennon’s side back in 2013.

Before that task, however, the eight-in-a-row title kings must take care of a Sarajevo side managed by former Hearts striker Husref Musemic.
