Celtic’s season is well underway already as Brendan Rodgers’ side look to qualify for the Champions League for the second year in a row. Indeed, while it’s not been an overly productive period in the transfer market for the Hoops, their continental exploits have been rather promising so far.
Under Rodgers’ expert guidance, the Bhoys look in good shape both on and off the field. Clearly, there could be more in the way of incomings, though there is still time left and ensuring his side manage to hold off Rosenborg on Wednesday is obviously the priority.
However, those behind the scenes look to be keeping busy, despite the lack of arrivals. The club took to Twitter to reveal they had reached an agreement with Pro Evolution Soccer to have their squad and stadium licenced in the game.

For a club the size of Celtic, it’s strange that this will be the first time in the modern era that they will be fully represented in a video game of this kind, much to the delight of supporters online.
With that in mind, here’s a look at what Twitter made of the agreement.
