CELTIC's stars and management team are now on their holidays after lifting the Premiership title last week.

When they return for pre-season towards the end of June, they will know that for the first time in well over ten-years, they will not need to face any Champions League qualifiers. 

Ange Postecoglou's side automatically secured group stage football in UEFA's top competition by winning the Scottish top flight.

So everybody connected to the club from the players to the fans will be excited at the prospect of once again mixing it up with Europe's elite come the autumn.
