Celtic’s Champions League campaign to kick off against Sarajevo

The treble-treble winners are provisionally due to play at home in the first leg on 9 or 10 July.

If they are to advance past the first round of Champions League qualifying, Celtic will have to better a familiar name to those of a certain age who regularly frequent Tynecastle.

The Scottish champions missed out on a place in last year's group stage after being dumped out at the third qualifying round by AEK Athens, although the team did progress to the last 32 of the Europa League under their former manager Brendan Rodgers.

In that time since he lifted the Scottish Cup, Brown has squeezed in a trip to Greece with his family as well as a few days in Edinburgh taking part in the latest stage of his UEFA A Licence coaching course.

But it was back to business on Monday as he rejoined the majority of Neil Lennon's triple-treble winning squad at their Lennoxtown base to begin their pre-season preparations.

Three of the top six goalscorer's in the Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina last season were from FK Sarajevo, with captain Velkoski, Mersudin Ahmetovic and Benjamin Tatar all reaching double figures.

"It's nearly a full 12 months or a year now and no holiday time".

The post was quickly deleted, and Favre told TMZ Sports that his account was hacked. The legendary quarterback is now 49 years old and in October, he will be turning 50.

"The one pang of regret was he'd finally got Dundalk to be seeded in this round of the Champions League which is massive". "I think we were disappointed with how Europe went past year, we feel like we didn't do ourselves justice in the games against Larnaca".

"I have kind of just given thought to who we could get". The defender was on Championship wages in League one.

Brown pointed out that the earlier start to the season meant pre-season arrangements had to be altered.

Brown's team-mates like Callum McGregor and James Forrest have had even less time to refresh given their Scotland commitments.

Now Brown has called for a scheduling rethink before one of his colleagues suffers a mishap through overuse. "They can look at the fixture list".

"Callum McGregor played 69 games and he has a week-and-a-half off", Brown added. "So it's hard to get everyone balanced off. It would help most clubs".
