Details have been released about Celtic’s friendly against French side Rennes with the game scheduled for December, 10 at 10am Celtic Park time [Rennes]. 

After extending their lead at the top of the SPFL Premiership to nine points, Celtic travelled to Australia to take on Sydney FC and Everton in Ange Postecoglou’s homecoming before getting a short break.
