CELTIC will meet Tottenham Hotspur in Helsinki this summer instead of original opponents Bayer Leverkusen.

The London side finished sixth in the English top flight this season and are sending a number of players to the World Cup in Brazil.

Neil Lennon's side will go head-to-head with Spurs in the Olympic Stadium on August 2, in what will be a homecoming for Celtic's Finnish striker Teemu Pukki, previously of HJK Helsinki.

The fixture will be ideal preparation for Celtic ahead of the defence of their SPFL Premiership crown, which gets underway the following weekend.
