Celtic set for San Siro clash

12 February 2007 04:19
Celtic's Champions League encounter with AC Milan looks set to be staged at the San Siro after UEFA hinted they were happy with the measures the Italian club has taken to improve safety. The Bhoys' last 16 second leg trip to Milan on March 7 had been brought into question after the death of a policeman before a Serie A match in Catania earlier in the month prompted an urgent review of safety inside Italian stadia. Although Milan's ground was among those not deemed to have met the new criteria, the Rossoneri returned to action on front of 20,000 season ticket holders against Livorno on Sunday. And director of communications William Gaillard has hinted that UEFA were satisfied by the weekend's events. "Although we have not received any official news from the Italian FA, I would imagine that what happened yesterday was a good rehearsal and the stadium would be at its normal capacity for the game between AC Milan and Celtic," he told BBC Radio Scotland.
