What they said

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel: "We now have two extraordinary results and we want to continue on Tuesday against Celtic.

"It's always good to play at the Parc des Princes. It's a unique, spectacular stadium and there's always a special atmosphere.

"Whether we play Le Havre, Beveren or Celtic, it's our goal to play the best game possible.

"For the match against Celtic, we might give the players 45 minutes each so they will be fresh for the Cup Final on Friday."

Celtic boss Neil Lennon: “Ideally, you’d like to stagger it so that you start off against maybe lower opposition and then build up, but we’ve been thrown into this and we’ve taken it with both hands because it’s been a brilliant couple of games for us [against Lyon and Nice].

“They’ve been out of football for five months and that’s a long time, but the majority of them have hit the ground running and they’re going to be asked a lot of questions on Tuesday which, again, is a great test and I think the players will really look forward to that one

“But in terms of an exercise for the pre-season, it’s been very good so far.”

  • CELTIC BENCH

    Doohan, Hazard, Klimala, Soro, Rogic, Bolingoli, Connell, Robertson, Forrest, Henderson, McInroy, Welsh, Dembele.

  • GOOD AFTERNOON

    Welcome to the live blog for PSG vs Celtic.

    Today’s friendly is a rather weird one, the French champions find themselves preparing for their UEFA Champions league quarter-final against Atalanta and their guests find themselves preparing for the start of the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership.

    PSG boss Thomas Tuchel had this to say ahead of the game: “We now have two extraordinary results and we want to continue on Tuesday against Celtic.

    “It's always good to play at the Parc des Princes. It's a unique, spectacular stadium and there's always a special atmosphere.

    “Whether we play Le Havre, Beveren or Celtic, it's our goal to play the best game possible.

    “For the match against Celtic, we might give the players 45 minutes each so they will be fresh for the Cup Final on Friday.”

    PSG will be looking to maintain momentum before going back into Europe’s most prestigious competition.

    Celtic boss Neil Lennon relishes the chance to play some of Europe’s elite: ““Ideally, you’d like to stagger it so that you start off against maybe lower opposition and then build up, but we’ve been thrown into this and we’ve taken it with both hands because it’s been a brilliant couple of games for us [against Lyon and Nice].

    “They’ve been out of football for five months and that’s a long time, but the majority of them have hit the ground running and they’re going to be asked a lot of questions on Tuesday which, again, is a great test and I think the players will really look forward to that one
