Martin O’Neill and Gordon Strachan will face each other on familiar territory when Ireland meet Scotland at Celtic Park later on in the year in their Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Ireland face Scotland away in their third fixture of the qualifiers on November 14, as Hampden Park is unavailable due to Glasgow’s hosting of the Commonwealth Games.

The Scottish FA confirmed in a statement that they have opted for Celtic Park, where the two former Celtic managers will lead out their national sides.

The statement read: “The Scottish FA has today confirmed that the venue for the UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying round Group D fixture between Scotland the Republic of Ireland will take place at Celtic Park, Glasgow.

“The fixture on Friday, November 14 (7.45pm), will take place at the home of SPL champions Celtic FC as Hampden Park is not available.

“Away tickets details will be provided this week and ticket applications for Ireland fans can be made through the FAI’s away ticketing portal: www.fai.ie/away.”
