The Hoops will travel to Poland to take part in a farewell friendly in honour of the former Parkhead fan favourite.

Celtic will fly to Poland to take part in a testimonial-style match in honour of former goalkeeper Artur Boruc as they ramp up their pre-season programme ahead of a return to domestic action later this month.

Ange Postecoglou’s side will face Legia Warsaw on Wednesday night as part of what is sure to be an emotional tribute match to the ex-Hoops fan favourite after he announced his retirement from professional football at the age of 42 last month.

The Polish shot-stopper, capped 65 times by the national team, will hang up his gloves after eight years of service across two seperate spells at Legia Warsaw.

Celtic will use the game as another step in their preparations ahead of the new season after settling for a 2-2 draw against English Championship side Blackburn Rovers last Saturday.

Postecoglou’s side played two games during their 10-day training camp in Austria, running out comfortable 7-0 winners over SC Weiner Viktoria before drawing 3-3 with Rapid Vienna.

Legia Warsaw, who finished a disappointing 10th in the Ekstraklasa last season, will be hoping for a much improved campaign under manager Kosta Runjaic this term.

They count Serbian full-back Filip Mladenovic, Polish international Bartosz Kaputska and Portuguese attacking midfielder Josue among their highest-rated players.
