Celtic Fans Delighted With Favourable Champions League Draw

Celtic Fans Delighted With Favourable Champions League Draw
By Colman Stanley Updated

Celtic are back in the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2018, and have been drawn alongside Real Madrid, RB Leipzig, and Shaktar Donetsk.

Despite having to play last year's Champions League winners, Real Madrid, it is a favourable draw for Celtic, and they will be optimistic of their chances of reaching the round of 16.

It is Rangers' first time back since 2011, and the first time since 2008 that both Celtic and Rangers have both made the groups stages. Rangers have been drawn alongside Liverpool, Napoli, and Ajax.
