Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell is of the opinion that there are changes afoot in European football.

Lawwell believes that the changes will take place in the Europa League, and will help Scottish clubs in the long run.

Speaking at Celtic’s AGM and reported in the Daily Record, Lawwell said “What might be changing is the Europa League.

“I think they are looking in the shorter term, ways of expanding the Europa League, and that would be great for Scottish football as well as Celtic.

“We know we are limited here in Scotland financially and the way forward for Celtic and Scottish clubs is to perform more in Europe and have more of our games played in Europe.”

Lawwell has presided over a huge period of success at Celtic Park, with the club having won six titles in a row.

Brendan Rodgers’ current side clinched Celtic’s first domestic treble since 2001 last season and their first unbeaten league season since the 1890s.

Before the international break, the Hoops claimed yet another notable achievement, setting a new British domestic record of 63 games unbeaten.

Celtic are next in action against Ross County this weekend, before the Bhoys take a trip to Paris to face PSG in the Champions League next Wednesday.

In other Celtic news, Kristoffer Ajer is set for talks on his future in January.
