Ex-Celts will turn out for John Kennedy.
Kennedy, who had to retire from football at the age of 26 because of his failure to recover from a knee injury, said: "I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to arrange this match. To have Martin O'Neill and many great former players agree to return to Celtic Park and play in this match is a huge honour for me. I have many memories from my time playing in the first team and I'm sure this day will be another day to remember."
Lennon added: "I'm delighted to take part in this match for John. It was incredibly sad that a player of John's considerable talent had to retire at such a young age due to injury. However, it will be fantastic to play once again for Martin O'Neill and team up with many of my former team mates - in particular those I played with in Seville. I'm sure everyone who turns up on the day will have a fantastic time."
