It is being reported that there is some uncertainty over the scheduling over the final derby league match between Celtic and Rangers which will lead to talks between the SPFL and Police Scotland [Football Scotland].

Both sides have already went up against each other three times in derby games this season having played each other at Celtic Park, Ibrox and Hampden. 

The next game will take place in the east end of Glasgow on Saturday 8 April but as both sides have also now been drawn to face each other in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.

Police tend to like the post-split fixture between both sides to take place early meaning they have concern about it being too close to the cup match. 

There could be potential that if Celtic are to travel to Ibrox for one of the first two split fixtures, it could be the game which they win the league title.

The last time that at Hoops side won the league at Ibrox was back in 1967 thanks to a brace from the legendary Jimmy Johnstone.

Rangers are yet to beat Ange Postecoglou’s side this season after a 4-0 thumping, 2-2 draw and 2-1 Viaplay Cup final defeat.
