Celtic to donate funds to refugees

Celtic announce that proceeds from a charity match against Dunfermline will be used to help refugees.

Scottish champions Celtic have announced that money earned from this weekend's match against Dunfermline will be donated to help refugees.

A Celtic Legends side will face Dunfermline in the Jock Stein 30th Anniversary Charity match on Sunday during the international break.

Chief executive Peter Lawwell told the club's website: "Having seen the effects of this humanitarian crisis unfold in recent days, we felt as a club we should help in any way we can.

"Celtic was established as a football club to help people in need and this ethos remains a fundamental part of our club almost 130 years after our formation."

The announcement follows Bayern Munich's decision to fund a training camp to provide education and food for refugees.
