Scottish champions Celtic are drawn to play Armenian side Alashkert FC in the first qualifying round of the Champions League.

Celtic have been drawn to play Armenian side Alashkert FC in the first qualifying round of the Champions League.

Brendan Rodgers is looking to build on last season's showing in the competition, with the Scottish giants finishing in third place in a group featuring Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich before losing to Zenit St Petersburg in the last 32 of the Europa League.

Celtic's first test in this year's competition is a meeting with Alashkert, who won the Armenian top flight by six points during the most recent campaign.

Elsewhere in the draw, Northern Irish side Crusaders have been handed a tough tie against Bulgarian outfit Ludogorets Razgrad, while Cork City will go up against Polish giants Legia Warsaw.

The New Saints have been drawn to play Shkendija, with the Welsh Premier side travelling to Macedonia for the first leg.

The opening games will be played on July 10 and 11, with the reverse fixtures taking place a week later.
