Celtic fans will be able to buy a beer inside the Parken Stadium next Thursday – after the club announced some key details for the Europa League fixture against Copenhagen.

Neil Lennon takes his in-form Celts to the Danish capital for our last 32 first leg next week and his side are expected to be backed by a decent following as is usually the case.

Earlier this week, we told you how the Danes had sold out their stadium for the fixture – the first time that has happened in Europe all season.

The atmosphere is, therefore, likely to be pretty electric as the Group E table-toppers roll into town.

However, it could be boosted even further with the news that alcohol will be on sale to Hoops fans.

It’s shaping up to be a wonderful trip for the fans going out to Denmark.

Following Celtic away in Europe is amazing as it is, but doing it in a knockout tie where we have a realistic chance of progression makes it even better.

And even if we falter against Stale Solbakken’s side on the night, we’ll still have the second leg to put things right.

If you’re going out to Scandinavia then enjoy yourself. But just remember to bring enough money.

It’s not cheap out there after all.
