Celtic will consider playing Champions League fixtures at an English Premier League stadium or in Dublin during next year's Commonwealth Games.
The Hoops will not be able to play any games at Parkhead in August 2014 because of the Games, however, should they win a third consecutive Scottish Premier League title this season they would be required to play Champions League qualifiers during this period.
Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has confirmed that the club have a number of options open to them including Edinburgh’s Murrayfield -- traditionally a rugby stadium -- and Dublin’s Aviva Stadium but no firm decision is expected to be made until the new year.
"We are in discussion with UEFA in terms of what options we have," Lawwell said.
"Once they are happy with those options then we will go and speak to the relevant owners of the stadia, possibly outside Scotland.
"It could be England or Ireland, the Aviva in Dublin or Croke Park or maybe even down south at a northern Premier League club.
"We have a big support in Dublin and the stadium was full when we played Liverpool in the summer there, so that would be great."
Lawwell is hopeful that UEFA will be receptive to the idea, citing a previous occasion when Celtic played at a neutral venue, against Rapid Vienna in 1984.
"We have to take that to [UEFA], but remember there is a precedent there from when we played at Old Trafford against Rapid Vienna.
"Internally we are developing a few options then we will take those to UEFA and see what they think. It's a list of three or four, maybe five. We'll look at that internally and then when we come up with a preferred three we will take it forward.
"Murrayfield is a big attraction clearly because it is near for the supporters, it's a fantastic stadium and that would be a high contender.
"That would be the only Scottish option. Neil [Lennon] would have an impact on the decision and we would need to look at ways of making sure the atmosphere was there and it was well attended. We will probably reach a decision early in the new year."
