Scotland and England will meet in a mid-season friendly at Celtic Park, ESPN has reported.

Rickie Lambert scores for England against Scotland last year

It will be the first time since 1999 that England have played Scotland in Scotland, a play-off qualifier for Euro 2000 that was decided in England’s favour by a Paul Scholes brace.

The sides met at Wembley a year ago with England winning 3-2, Rickie Lambert - then of Southampton but now a Liverpool striker - scoring with his first touch as a senior international.

Glasgow will host this year’s fixture on November 18, days after England play away at Slovenia in a Euro 2016 qualifier. Scotland meanwhile host Republic of Ireland on November 14, also at Celtic Park.

“We have enjoyed an encouraging build-up to our UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, and I am sure the players, the coaching staff and the fans will love the chance to go head-to-head with our oldest rivals again,” said Scotland manager Gordon Strachan.

“Like our supporters, I was really heartened by the performance against England at Wembley and believe we had a great opportunity to record a win we could all have talked about for years.

“"Now we have that chance again, and I am sure the players and the fans will be even more determined to take it,” he continued. “The atmosphere at Wembley was incredible and I am sure, with Celtic Park filled with Scotland supporters, it is a game the whole country will look forward to.”
