Celtic will face either Linfield from Belfast or La Fiorita from San Marino in the second qualifying round of the Champions League. The Irish club will be overwhelming favourites to face the Scottish champions.
Preliminary dates for the first leg would see Celtic away from home on the 11 or 12 July, which would present unique security issues for authorities, should we be in Belfast on either evening.
The first qualifying rounds take place on 27/28 June and 4/5 July.
Not the potential draw anyone wanted, and the last ingredient Belfast needs that week.
