Celtic assistant manager John Collins concedes he would rather face St Patrick's Athletic if his club progress into the third round of Champions League qualifying.

"We would probably prefer to play in Ireland" - John Collins
The Hoops will either meet the Irish side or Polish outfit Legia Warsaw following a tight 1-1 draw between the pair in their first-leg.

For their part the Scottish champions
must build upon a narrow 1-0 away win at KR Reykjavik in order to get through.

"I think it's a good draw," Collins told BBC Scotland. "We would probably prefer to play in Ireland; closer, less travelling. But, first thing's first, we've got to take care of the second leg.

"I would think [Legia Warsaw] should be favourites. I believe they spent a lot of money," he added. "They're a big club. St Pat's must feel they've got a good chance of going through. I'm sure they'll be highly motivated to play Celtic in the next round."
