The Scottish champions were reinstated into the competition after Legia Warsaw were found to have fielded an ineligible player in their second leg tie against the Hoops in the third qualifying round.
Bartosz Bereszynski had been suspended following a red card for violent conduct in last season's Europa League, but came on as an 86th-minute substitute.
Legia won the second leg 2-0, meaning they won 6-1 aggregate over Celtic.
Earlier this month UEFA awarded Celtic a 3-0 win in the second leg - ensuring their qualification on away goals, given the 4-4 aggregate score.
The Polish club challenged the ruling at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which is considered the last resort for sporting matters, however, it found in UEFA's favour.
