Celtic have confirmed the dates for the Clyde cup tie after it was accidentally leaked by broadcaster Premier Sports on Thursday.
We reported the fixture dates had been put up prematurely by the TV channel who will be showing the game live.
Celtic have now made the official announcement and its no surprise it’s bang on the money.

Premier Sports have been in and out of Scottish football, grabbing rights to certain Euro qualifiers. However, their Scottish cup tv deal is the most expansive to date. Right now, to make sure you don’t miss a minute of Scottish football action on the TV, you have to be subscribed to BT Sports, Sky Sports and Premier Sports. Not ideal but this will at least go down to two in the summer when BT bow out of the Scottish game.
Celtic take on Clyde in the Scottish Cup fifth round early February and will be hoping to make sure they progress and defend their Scottish cup title.
