THere have been many critics of the SPFL league split since it was introduced and their voices might just get a little louder after the latest one planned for April.
As it stands, right now, The Rangers have already or will play every team in the top six right now twice at home.
Celtic, Hibernian, Hearts, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen will have already visited Ibrox by the time the split roles around and with clubs guaranteed two home games it looks like there will be a third trip to Ibrox for two of these teams if they all make the top six.
There’s no way a game at Celtic Park will be moved to Ibrox to make a Celtic game the third visit and Aberdeen are likely to put up strong opposition to any notion they have to go to Ibrox again this term.
This no doubt leaves Kilmarnock in the firing line with Hibs and Hearts set take the other game. Perhaps Hibs won’t mind it seeing as they’ve won in their last two visits.
The SPFL statement at the start of the season addressed the split –
“The most important thing is to try to ensure clubs finish the season having played 19 games at home and 19 away. Unfortunately, to facilitate this some clubs will need to gain one home game and some will need to lose one to ensure balance.”
