Celtic Park has been confirmed as the venue for Ireland's Euro 2016 Group D qualifier against Scotland on November 14.

With Hampden Park unavailable for the crunch clash due to the Commonwealth Games, the Scottish FA confirmed the venue this afternoon.

The confirmation was welcomed by Ireland fans yesterday.

"Celtic Park is steeped in Irish tradition so this will add to the buzz and atmosphere for the large number of travelling fans," said Liam Murray of fans website www.youboysingreen.ie.

Over 10,000 Ireland fans are expected to travel to Scotland for the match and tickets for away fans will be made available this week.
