Celtic have confirmed they will take on Queen's Park in a pre-season friendly this summer before jetting off for their US tour.

Five days after their first friendly of the off-season against Ayr United at Somerset Park, the Premiership and Scottish Cup champions will make the short trip to the City Stadium to face Callum Davidson's Queen's Park in an evening kick-off on Wednesday, July 10.

It will be the first time that the two sides have met in over 15 years, when Celtic claimed a narrow 2-1 victory in the Scottish Cup at Celtic Park in February 2009. The two domestic friendlies will serve as ideal preparation for Brendan Rodgers' men, who will then step up the gears during their pre-season tour across the pond.The Hoops take on DC United on Sunday July 21, before glamour clashes against Premier League duo Manchester City (Wednesday, July 24) and Chelsea (Saturday, June 25) in the Florida Cup.
