Aston Villa and Celtic arrange two pre-season matches in a bid to raise money for leukaemia research.

Aston Villa and Celtic have organised two pre-season matches in aid of Stiliyan Petrov.

The Bulgarian was diagnosed with acute leukaemia last month, leading his two British clubs to arrange the testimonial games in his honour.

It is believed that the money raised from the fixtures will be donated to leukaemia research.

The matches will be played at Villa Park and Celtic Park respectively and will also feature games between former players of both clubs.
