Friday 31 May 2024 12:00

It promises to be some occasion on 7 September when Celtic come to Manchester to take part in the latest Legends game at Old Trafford.

Guaranteed to attract a large following from the Glasgow giants, the exhibition match will raise vital funds for Manchester United Foundation.

The fixture takes place during an international break and allows fans to see some of the stars from the past competing on the hallowed turf, in what is certain to be a competitive affair.

Celtic have a tradition of visiting the Reds' home to provide opposition for some classic testimonials, including those paying tribute to Bryan Robson, Brian McClair, Ryan Giggs and Roy Keane.

Robson is set to manage the United team later this year and will be busy trying to organise his squad of ex-Reds to tackle the Bhoys. Further announcements regarding our players will be made in due course.

Celtic's Legends played against their Borussia Dortmund counterparts, in front of over 30,000 fans at Parkhead last weekend.

The Scottish side, managed by Paul Lambert, Tom Boyd and Tosh McKinlay, won 4-2 with Scott Brown captaining the team and the likes of Artur Boruc, Stiliyan Petrov, Shaun Maloney, Georgios Samaras and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink involved.

Again, more details on the Bhoys featuring at Old Trafford will be relayed by our official channels closer to the big day.

Of course, in addition to meeting Celtic this year, the first team are also facing the Double winners' fierce rivals from across Glasgow, Rangers, during the pre-season campaign.

The friendly is scheduled for Murrayfield, in Edinburgh, on Saturday 20 July, with tickets still available to purchase.
