All main Celtic players are with first squad incude for more important game for them, home game with Internacionale Fc. They are writing just abvouth that game, there was little text for this one (you will read it down). This team is full of youngsters and i expect home win. Cliftonville is Northern Irish club, not so strong but statr preare early for season because of Europe. They played in Europa league, won first game at home Kamlar from Sweden but than eliminated.
CELTIC face a pre-season warm-up in Belfast on July 28 – with a Celtic XI taking on Cliftonville in a specially-arranged friendly.
Stevie Frail will take a squad of talented young players over for the match in Belfast, fielding many of the young stars who featured in the Development Squad last term and some who are looking to make the step-up from the Under-19s this season.
It promises to be an exciting and testing encounter with one of Ireland’s oldest football clubs, who boast a former Celt in their ranks in striker, Diarmuid O’Carroll.
And, as he looked forward to the match, Celtic coach Stevie Frail explained that his young players will be well-prepared for a ‘competitive’ outing.
“This is a great opportunity and will be a key part of our pre-season preparations,” Frail told the official website.
“We never take teams lightly, we don’t do ‘friendlies’ and the boys will be there to play at a level we are happy with and produce the standard of performance we expect from them.
“Any time we go to Ireland we get tough games and we also get the chance to see the Celtic support there.
“That’s always a privilege and a surprise for some of them, although a few of the boys have played over there now and have an idea of what to expect. Hopefully there will be a good turn-out for what should be a good game.”
