Celtic are currently weighing up whether to play some of their Champions League qualification games in Ireland next season.
The Commonwealth Games, that run from July 23 to August 3, will clash at least one qualifying round for the Champions League next season meaning that the Bhoys will have to play a home tie next season away from Parkhead if they win the SPL this year as expected.
“It looks like the Q2 qualifier will definitely be away from Celtic Park and possibly Q3 whether the first leg is home or away,” Lawwell told STV.
“At the moment we’ve got two or three options that we are looking at internally. The most likely is Murrayfield because it is the right size, the right quality for Champions League and it’s nearer Glasgow.
“There would be a big support in Dublin.
“We’re developing a few options and then we’ll take it to UEFA and see what they think. I don’t really know until we see the possibilities."
