CELTIC have been given a Saturday Glasgow Derby for their second home tie against The Rangers this year, after Sky Sports confirmed their broadcasting schedule.
Celtic will play their third derby of the season on Saturday 8th, April in a 12.30 kick-off. It’s a rare slot to have these days, especially for a derby match, with fans used to the typical Sunday slots.
The kick-off was one of three matches to get given a new slot. The match against St Mirren in Paisley has been changed to the 5th of March at 12 pm while the trip to Dingwall has also been changed to a 12 pm kick-off on the 2nd of April. Both changes were made for the purpose of TV.

The derby game could be title-deciding if things stay as they are and Celtic maintain their nine-point lead. Going twelve clear in April would make it almost impossible for The Rangers to come back from.
