Celtic Wait On Qarabag Pitch Update

3 August 2015, 10:46

Celtic are waiting for information on their next Champions League venue after reports in Azerbaijan claimed Qarabag's pitch is badly damaged.

Reports have claimed that the pitch is heat-damaged and that up to a third of the surface is unplayable, although other reports claim the damage is only cosmetic.

Celtic fly out to Baku on Monday with a 1-0 lead ahead of Wednesday's third qualifying round match.

A Celtic spokesman said: "We are aware of the issue as regards the pitch in Baku.

"At the moment we are seeking reassurances over the quality of the surface.''
