Celtic are to meet Maribor of Slovenia in the play-off round of the Champions League qualifiers.

It follows the Scottish champions being reinstated into the competition after latest opponents Legia Warsaw were thrown out for fielding an ineligible player.

The Hoops were awarded a 3-0 second-leg 'walkover' victory after the suspended Bartosz Bereszynski was brought off the bench for the last couple of minutes. That was sufficient for them to progress through on away goals.

Ronny Deila's side travel to Slovenia for the first-leg on 19th or 20th August with the return in Scotland on 26th or 27th August.

While very happy to see our name in the draw again, I can't help feeling this time it is just simply wrong. Oddly, we didn't even bring this to UEFA's attention! They instigated it themselves. After the fiasco of the last time with the cheats from Sion, I can't see an appeal being given the time of day. UEFA won't want to go through the same garbage as they did then. They will stand their ground this time. But I honestly feel bad for Legia Warsaw. While Celtic performed ocver two legs, what I consider to be the worst European performances in my 50+ years watching and following them, LW deserve better. Sure, it was human error but by how many people? Surely this was not the full responsibility of just one person? This was probably a premeditated move to rub our noses in it. But after watching the games, believe me, our noses were already in it far enough to not require further rubbing! This is a Celtic I haven't seen since Tony Mowbray became boss. The closest to the level of lack of desire they show today, was under Tony and even John Barnes. These rocket scientists like Barnes, Mowbray and Deila who all think they have a "secret" about the game that has never been used before have no place in Paradise. We got a warning this week. Deila is not the man. Take that to the bank. Replace him now and don't give him the opportunity to make us look this bad a second time. Collins can take the reigns until Henrik is available in November. Moyes is available as is McKay. Fix this now Celtic. We have been given a bigger lifeline than you think. The olive branch needs to be grasped by both hands, not just a finger.
