The Scottish Premier League holders have been paired with the Northern Irish outfit in the second qualifying round of Europe's premier club competition for an all-British battle

Scottish Premier League champions Celtic have been drawn against Irish League champions Cliftonville in the second qualifying round of the Champions League.

The Bhoys, former European Cup winners, reached the last 16 of last year's tournament, where they were eliminated at the hands of Juventus.

Northern Irish champions Cliftonville qualified for the competition after winning the Irish League last season and are rewarded with an all-British tie.

Elsewhere, League of Ireland winners Sligo Rovers were drawn against Norwegian outfit Molde.

The ties will take place over two legs on July 16-17 and July 23-24. The winners of the second qualifying round will progress to the third qualifying round and a playoff to reach the group stage.
