Celtic will play Norwegian champions Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League knockout play-off round.

They have dropped into UEFA’s new club tournament after finishing third in their Europa League group behind Bayer Leverkusen and Real Betis.

Bodo/Glimt finished second in their Conference League group, which was won by Jose Mourinho’s Roma, even though the Norwegians thrashed the Italians 6-1 at home.

The winner of the play-off game in February will then face a Conference League group winner in the last 16 the following month.

Celtic are scheduled to host the first leg on Thursday, February 17 before travelling to northern Norway the following week.

Bodo/Glimt have won back-to-back Eliteserien titles despite only returning to the top flight in 2018 following relegation.

Meanwhile, Rangers will take on Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League play-off round.
