Linfield are set to play one of the biggest matches in their history this evening when they take on Celtic at Windsor Park.

The Champions League second qualifying round, first leg tie kicks off at 5pm.

The Glasgow club declined its ticket allocation for travelling fans, due to safety concerns.

Celtic's County Antrim-born boss Brendan Rodgers says he's saddened that officially there'll be no away fans at the game.


The Blues are rank outsiders against a team unbeaten in Scotland last season.

But manager David Healy says he wants his players to do Northern Ireland proud.

Celtic crashed to a shock defeat in Rodgers' first game in charge last year when they lost a Champions League qualifier to Lincoln Red Imps in Gibraltar.

The Carnlough man told Q Radio Sport he'll not be underestimating the Blues as a result of that experience.


He says the Hoops have done their homework, including spying missions at Linfield's first qualifying round games against La Fiorita of San Marino.
