Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell is now focusing on the Champions League after achieving success in the Scottish Premier League.

The Hoops snared the title on the weekend but Lawwell does not want to stop there with qualification for Europe’s premier club competition now a must.

“This is just the beginning and we have to get the club back into the Champions League,” he said.

“That is the objective and we’ve already started planning for next term.

“It’s a young team with an average age of around 23 so there is a good base to go forward.

“Inevitably, there will be one or two going and one or two coming in.

“We’ll be starting on July 29 for the qualifier so all preparation will lead to that. Hopefully, we can strengthen over the summer to cope.”
