Celtic’s Scottish international players have received the dates for their up-and-coming play-off semi-final and potential final against Ukraine and Wales in June.
However, due to the current ongoing issues in Ukraine, the original game was postponed, with the hope of playing the fixture at a later date.
That date has now been announced, with the Tartan Army set to take on Ukraine at Hampden on the 1st of June. A win in that game, would then see them travel to Wales on the 5th of June to play for a place at the tournament in Qatar later this year.
Our @FIFAWorldCup Play-Off Semi-Final against Ukraine will be played on Wednesday, 1 June.
The winner of this match will face Wales in a Play-Off Final on Sunday, 5 June.
Tickets bought for the original Ukraine match remain valid.

With injury issues to players in the same position and a potential Champions League final just days before the semi-final for Liverpool defender Andy Robertson, the Ukraine game could prove as a good opportunity for Greg Taylor to earn a starting spot.
Those involved in June’s qualifying fixtures are expected to have a busy month, with Scotland potentially facing up to five fixtures due to UEFA Nations League games scheduled days later.
