This was at UEFA's request.
The game, which was originally supposed to be played in September but was postponed by the Scottish Government after an incident from Celtic fullback Boli Bolingoli saw the Belgian break quarantine rules when travelling to Spain without telling anyone about his trip.
This has added to the two further games in hand that Celtic having against Livingston and St Mirren, with one taking place this month and the other in March.
