    Hey guys, even though we are not finished this seasons CL i was wondering about next seasons qualifiers. The champions of the SPL are listed as being in the second qualification round, meaning we would have to play 3 qualifiers next season compared to only 2 last year. Was wondering if this would change seeing our success this season or will we stay with teams from Finland, Norway, Eastern Europe etc
    Anyone able to cast some light on this..

    we will still enter via the champions route which means we will be playing other league champions like helsinki and helsingborgs again rather than runners up like arsenal and benfica :50:

    This shows ever team we could potentially get, personally i enjoyed the ties agains HJK and Helsingborgs but think we deserve a little better seeing how well we've managed to do

    Scottish clubs in Europe 2013-2014 season

    Champions League
    Celtic 2nd qualifying round

    Europa League

    If Celtic win Scottish Cup then either

    Dundee Utd, Hibernian or Falkirk (as runners up) enter 1st Round qualifier
    SPL Runner up in 3rd Qualifying round
    SPL 3rd place in 2nd Qualifying round

    If Celtic lose Scottish Cup then either
    Dundee Utd, Hibernian or Falkirk (as runners up) enter 3rd round qualifier
    SPL Runners up enter 2nd round qualifier
    SPL 3rd place enter 2nd round qualifier


    Just checked our ranking for CL

    We are currently ranked 62.
    Next season we are ranked 54 and for 2014-2015 we are ranked 41 but obviously that will all change depending on how we perform next season.

    Yeah but the second qualifying round, which we enter, is only made up of champions anyway.

    Hope we get Sligo Rovers or The New Saints in the second qualifying round.

    It will be a tough task for us to qualify for the Champions league next season. 6 games just to get to the group stages. A massive task. I am confident we will get to the europa league playoffs at least.

    Will we still avoid teams better than us again this year i.e 4th placed England,Spanish teams and play against teams from smaller nations??

    Especially given how early on the second and third rounds are it will be tough for Celtic. But you would think with how much the players both achieved and clearly enjoyed this years Champions League run that they will be very motivated and that extra motivation will hopefully overcome early season rust.

    Will need to get them back in from their holidays early. These games are the most important games of next season. Approach them with the same attitude we did this season and we should do okay.

    No it won't.

    For 2013/14 European campaign, Scotland are ranked 18th.

    For 2014/15 European campaign, Scotland are ranked 24th.

    How can this be calculated when It takes the previous 5 season coefficients??

    13/14 is yet to be played.We are ranked 24th for 13/14 (next season)

    Perhaps I should have said - but I was meaning if this season triumphs were repeated.

    Scotland would lose 1.8.. points and be replaced by circa 5 (plus 1 more from the extra qualifiers,mabe 1 from europa extra qualifiers) and we would rise back to roughly 19th ( as the teams immediately above suffer from having more teams in europe) putting Scotland back into 3rd Qualifying round.

    No, as I said, we are ranked 18th for 2013/14 (the 2012 country ranking). For 2014/15, we are 24th (the 2013 country ranking).

    This season we were ranked 15th.

    The reason for the large drop in 2014/15 is due to 07/08 dropping out, where Scotland got 10.250 points, and being replaced by this season where Scotland got 4.300 points.
