Celtic have been granted permission to let 9,000 supporters into Parkhead for their Champions League qualifier against FC Midtjylland.

The Hoops say they are "disappointed" with the agreed numbers, but a statement detailed how the club were looking forward to welcoming some supporters back to their stadium.

It read: "Clearly, we have worked tirelessly in this area, we had pushed for many more fans to be given access and of course we are disappointed that more supporters will not be able to attend.

"However, we really look forward to welcoming our fans for the match on Tuesday, as we do on Saturday when we meet Preston North End.

"We can assure our supporters we will be doing all we can to work closely with the relevant authorities and welcome our fans back in even greater numbers in the coming weeks.  

"Details on match ticket balloting will be shared in the next 24 hours, but in the meantime we ask that you continue to familiarise yourself with our new protocols for reduced capacity matches at Celtic Park – full details of which can be found on the Celtic website here.

"We want nothing more than to welcome as many fans back to the stadium as quickly as possible, and therefore appreciate your patience as we continue to work behind the scenes to make that happen."
