It has been announced on the Scottish FA website that the official taking charge of Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership tie will be referee Alan Muir.

He will be joined by Alan Mulvanny and Andy Milne who will be linesman on the night and his fourth official Peter Stuart.

Muir’s last Celtic fixture came all the way back in August last year, in one of the first fixtures of the season as the Hoops drew 1-1 with Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

Some may remember that fixture as one to forget, in particular Christopher Jullien who had a poor game up against Killie frontman Nicke Kabamba giving away a spot-kick. It was also left-back Boli Bolingoli’s last game for the club this season after it was revealed a few days later that he had travelled to Spain without authorising anyone of his visit.

The 45-year old official has been in charge of two Aberdeen games this season with the most recent coming in their 2-1 against St Johnstone on Boxing Day.

This game may be one between sides nearer the top end of the table, however, it is also two sides who aren’t playing their best football at the moment. Aberdeen are currently five games without a goal, whilst Celtic having won their last four games, they haven’t really set the world alight in those fixtures.

Fingers crossed we don’t need to see too much of the official in a game like this but in Scottish Football who knows.
