Early look: The best and worst possible Champions League groups Celtic could draw in 2016/17

Celtic Champions League

Who could Celtic draw in the Champions League next season?

A good Champions League run is vital for Celtic next season, just ask Ronny Deila.

The Norwegian has resigned from his post despite winning two league titles, with his popularity failing to recover from a woeful Champions League effort which saw the club defeated in the qualifiers by Malmo.

Celtic will still have a qualifying round to play this season, against opponents which are yet to be determined until the preliminary round are played.

What we do know is that if Celtic make it into the group stages, they will be in UEFA's Pot Four, report ESPN.

Here is a look at the best and worst possible groups they could draw if they get there...

Best case scenario: Leicester City, Bayer Leverkusen, PSV Eindhoven, Celtic

Worst case scenario: Bayern Munich, Atletico or Real Madrid (winner of this weekend's final), Tottenham Hotspur, Celtic

Should they draw that last nightmare group, it could be a case of goodbye Celtic and thanks for taking part, but the best case scenario is not at all daunting.

Surprise champions of England Leicester City are among the top seeds, while Leverkusen and PSV are good sides but not teams Celtic should necessarily be daunted by.
