Celtic have binned their pre season visit to South Korea due to ‘weeks of delays’ by the tour promotor, the club have confirmed.
A statement read: “It is with deep regret that Celtic Football Club has been forced to withdraw from our match in South Korea.
“The Hoops were originally due to play English Premier League side, Wolves, later this month, but numerous financial and logistical operations were not met by the tour promoter, and after weeks of delays, the Club has taken the difficult decision to terminate the contract and pull out of the tour.
The Club and the players were excited about visiting South Korea and giving our fans the opportunity to see the team, but unfortunately, due to factors entirely out with our control, we have been left with no other option than to withdraw from the match.
“Brendan Rodgers’ side will head to Japan for two matches against Yokohama F. Marinos (July 19) and Gamba Osaka (July 22) before returning to Lennoxtown to continue their pre-season preparations.”
