Tuesday Round-Up: No Glorious Twelfth For The Celts

Liam Brady of Celtic
Liam Brady - appointed Celtic manager on this day in 1991.

THE BIG STORY: Celtic's upcoming Champions League Qualifier against either Linfield or SP La Fiorita has thrown up some timing issues, with Celtic due to play in Belfast in either July 11th or 12th if Linfield, as expected, defeat La Fiorita of San Marino.

The rumours are that the game would have an early kick-off on the 11th, which is what Linfield have suggested to the PSNI (Police Service of Northern Ireland). Of course, if Linfield are defeated none of this will matter, but we'll keep you updated as the story progresses.

OTHER NEWS: Jonny Hayes has been talking to the press about becoming a Celtic player, he is so excited about making his debut he would play 'in the car park' if he could.

Tom Rogic continued his recent run of good form, scoring for Australia in their 3-2 Confederations Cup defeat to Germany.

In other news, GIGPOD will be recording an interview with Alan Stubbs and want you - the Celtic fans of social media - to DM them questions for him to answer. Follow them on twitter here and send in some interesting questions for big Stubbsy.

ON THIS DAY: In 1991, Liam Brady was appointed manager of Celtic. The job was certainly a big one for a rookie manager, and Brady also had to deal with the late Rangers FC at their big spending worst. He eventually departed two and a bit years later without having won any trophies, but his team did play excellent football at times, as the 3-0 victory over Cologne in 1992 demonstrated.
