Celtic 2013-14 Season Preview:
Celtic will be playing 2nd round qualifier against Cliftonville FC in the Champions League qualifiers and if they get through to the 3rd round playoff they will be playing a double header with the first leg on 30 July, while the 2nd leg will be in 6 August, while the opponent is to be announced with a draw on July 20.
Celtic are a famous Scotish side who has been a force to reckon with domesticly, they are the current league champions and last year their performences in the Champions League were superb, they beat Barcelona at Celtic park and almost got a result at Cam Nou when they were undone in the dying moments.
Celtic are favourites to win the league title again, but that is not what they are interested in, they would like to progress through the Champions League and that is where their real objective it.
