Man Utd to face Celtic in Europe

Champions League holders Manchester United were drawn with Scottish champions Celtic in the group stages of this year's competition.
The British pair will also face Spaniards Villarreal and Danish side Aalborg in Group E.
Chelsea were drawn with Roma, Bordeaux and Romanian minnows CFR Cluj, while Liverpool will meet PSV, Marseille and Atletico Madrid in a tough group.
Arsenal will play Porto, Fenerbahce and Dynamo Kiev in Group G.
The four English sides were guaranteed to be kept apart after being made top seeds, but Celtic could have faced any one of them after being drawn in the third pot of clubs.
They will get their chance test themselves against the English champions in two Battle of Britain clashes.
Think it'll be a tough wee group for the Hoops!
The fixtures will pit Celtic manager Gordon Strachan against his one-time boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
The pair met in the Champions League group stages in 2006/07, with Celtic winning 1-0 at home but Manchester United edging the return fixture 3-2 at Old Trafford.
Chelsea were the first side out of the hat and look to have been given the easiest task of progressing through to the knockout stages.
Both Liverpool and Arsenal face difficult opposition if they are to progress to the last 16 of the competition.
But they will be pleased to have avoided the likes of Bayern Munich and Juventus, who were potential opponents in the second pot of teams.
The first set of matches will be played on 16/17 September.
