League football returns after a less than impressive start in Scotland's World Cup qualification campaign. Celtic, in second place, will look for the three points at McDiarmid Park, where an injury-plagued St Johnstone side will host them. Benfica and Champions League football will surely be on Celtic's fans heads, but the players need to be focused in this match if they want to avoid a shocking defeat against the bottom team.

The cycling world received today even more stunning news: one of its most important athletes has given up on defending himself against USADA's charges. He wants to concentrate more on other aspects of his life rather than continue a fight against what he considers "nonsense". Here is Armstrong's full statement.
Celtic play once again with their European future in sight. Neil Lennon's men hope to achieve a positive result to retain their hopes of reaching the Champions League group stages. Helsingborgs IF are currently 5th in the Swedish league, and they will be far better physically than their Scottish counterparts. Henrik Larsson played for both teams and hasn't shown his allegiance "Hopefully the best team will go through", the Landskrona BOIS manager has said.

Injury-plagued Celtic visit Dingwall looking for their second win in as many SPL matches. They failed to shine on their first match against Aberdeen and will try to do so today. Ross County are the underdogs, but are unbeaten on their home turf in their last 36 matches. Neil Lennon's men played a Cup round there last year, a tight match they won 0-2. The Staggies will try to shock Celtic just like they did in 2009, when a 2-0 win knocked out Celtic of the Scottish Cup Final. All the emotion will be here, in Vavel. KO:12:15 / Victoria Park, Dingwall / Referee: Craig Thomson
Celtic Champions League hopes are pending on today's match. The game in Helsinki will decide whether the Hoops fail once again to reach the CL group stage or if,otherwise, they can be among Europe's elite for the first time in four years. Neil Lennon's men carry on a narrow 2-1 win from the opening leg, but the game in Helsinki will be a difficult one. The Finns will try to cause an upset and they showed at Parkhead that they are more than capable of causing trouble to Celtic's defensive line.
Celtic unfurl the Champions flag on the first day of the season. Aberdeen have signed several good players during the summer and will hope to cause and upset. Neil Lennon's men have HJK Helsinki and the Champions League qualifying still pending, and the Dons can use these nerves in their favour.
Scottish Champions Celtic start this year's European adventure against HJK Helsinki at Celtic Park. Neil Lennon's men are massive favourites against a team which is currently in 2nd position in the Finnish Veikkausliiga. The Finns are already in Scotland and accept their "underdogs" condition, but they believe this tag can help them achieve a good result. Kick off:19:45 // Celtic Park // Referee: Miroslav Zelinka (CZE).
