Petrov, who announced his retirement last month at the age of 33 as he continues his battle with leukaemia, and a number of his former team-mates and other players and celebrity fans will turn out at Celtic Park on Sunday, September 8 (2pm kick-off).

The ex-Bulgaria, CSKA Sofia and Aston Villa player, who is setting up a foundation to help address the issues involved when people receive a leukaemia diagnosis, said on www.celticfc.net: "I'm absolutely delighted that this game is going to take place at Celtic Park.

"It will be a wonderful start for my foundation, and I'm really happy to be coming back to a place where I spent seven brilliant years. It will be great to see everyone there."

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell added: "Stiliyan was a wonderful servant to the club and his drive, commitment and natural flair made him a true fans' favourite.

"He has shown remarkable courage and determination in his battle against leukaemia and we will continue to support him as his recovery continues.

"We are absolutely delighted to host this charity match which will provide our supporters with a collective opportunity to show their appreciation and love for one of our own."

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
