CELTIC have been drawn against Israeli champions Hapoel Be'er-Sheva in the play-off round of the Champions League. 

The Hoops saw off the challenge of Lincoln Red Imps and Astana to reach the final qualifying round, but must now get past the Israelis to reach the group stage for the first time since the 2013/14 season.

Brendan Rodgers' side secured their place in the draw on Wednesday night after Moussa Dembele's late winner from the penalty spot gave them a 3-2 aggregate victory against the champions of Kazakhstan.

The draw was made in two sections, with Celtic going through the champions route as a seeded club. 

Hapoel Be'er Sheva knocked out Greek giants Olympiacos in the last round with a 1-0 aggregate win after a 3-2 victory in the second qualifying round tie against Sheriff Tiraspol of Moldova.

Celtic will host the first leg at Celtic Park on 16/17 August before the return match in Israel a week later on 23/24 August.

Manchester City, who finished fourth in the English Premier League last season, will face Steaua Bucharest of Romania.
