"For large parts we were outstanding", said Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, whose side play AEK Athens in a Champions League qualifier on Wednesday. Maribor accounted for Rangers on a 3-2 aggregate in the play-off for the group stage in August 2011, a defeat with consequential loss of income which contributed to the financial meltdown at Ibrox the following year.

As a seeded club in the draw, Celtic could have been drawn against the victor of Qarabag vs. BATE Borisov, both of whom have been recent competitors in the Champions League group stages.

Despite his country crashing out in the group stages, Arzani has earned himself a dream move to Manchester City, although he will be immediately loaned out to Scottish champions Celtic, according to Fox Sports.

Vidi - formerly known as Videoton - have yet to reach that stage in their two Champions League campaigns so far, falling in the second and third qualifying rounds.

Having seen off Armenia's Alashkert Yerevan and Norwegian side Rosenborg, they now face a side they have never met before.

If Celtic fail to overcome AEK Athens, they will drop into the Europa League play-off round, where they would face either Spartaks Jurmala of Latvia or Lithuanian side Suduva on 23 and 30 August.
