How can I watch Celtic friendly with Queen's Park? The only way for locked out Hoops fans to see pre season clash

The pre-season preparations are ramping up for Celtic as they take the short trip across Glasgow to face Queen's Park.

The Hoops got things started against Ayr United last week and it's another Championship side this time as Callum Davidson's team offer the final opposition before the Premiership champions fly out to the States. Brendan Rodgers used 23 players against Ayr - different XIs for each half - and it's likely there will be similar rotation this time. Particularly with key men like Daizen Maeda and Luis Palma back in contention to feature.

For fans it's the last chance to get a look at how things are shaping up before a trip to the US where the standard of opposition will ramp up dramatically, with DC United, Man City and Chelsea lined up across the pond. The Spiders will be a test in themselves though as with their competitive season starting this weekend, they won't be taking it lightly. Here's how you can watch the action.

Where and when is Queen's Park vs Celtic?

Queens will return to their spiritual home from September, but with Hampden still out of commission, the City Stadium, formerly known as Lesser Hampden, will have to do for this one. The game is on Wednesday, 10 July, with a 7.45pm kick-off.

How can I watch the game?

Due to the tiny 900 capacity at the City Stadium, there will be no away fans in attendance at the game. And it won't be shown live on any TV channels.

However Celtic TV subscribers can stream the game live to their devices. Fans wanting to watch the game can pick up an annual subscription for £50, or a premium annual subscription for £80 here. That will cover all four of Celtic's remaining pre-season friendlies: the Queen's Park clash, before a trip to the States to face DC United, Man City and Chelsea.
