Liverpool and Celtic to clash in Mauritius

Liverpool and Celtic could come together in a meeting of two British giants in the island nation of Mauritius.

Reports suggest that the Reds, on the verge of winning their first Premier League title, and Scottish champions Celtic are hoping to organise a summer friendly on the Indian Ocean island.

Liverpool have reportedly agreed to a tour of Mauritius while the Hoops have provisionally arranged to travel for a May 18 fixture which would be played at the 30,000-capacity Stade Anjalay in Belle Vue Maurel.

Jawid Tharanee, spokesman for organisers Health and Sport, said: "Given the friendly relations between Liverpool and Celtic, the Scottish club have agreed to come.

"They made contact with us and agreed without much convincing. We had requests from German and Italian clubs to play too, but we are happy with Celtic."
