CELTIC’S final Premiership game before the SPL split against Hibs at Easter Road had had a switch of dates.

The champions were due to play in Edinburgh on Saturday April 4 with a 3pm kick-off, but it has now been put back 24 hours to the Sunday and will now commence at noon.

Satellite broadcasters Sky Sports have selected the match to be shown live on television which has brought about the alteration in the fixture schedules.

Neil Lennon has already been back at his former club in this campaign as they shed two points in a 1-1 draw in September where Ryan Christie equalised after Kristoffer Ajer had put through his own goal.

However, the Hoops got their own back when they hammered Hibs 5-2 in the Betfred League Cup semi-final in November, a defeat that saw Paul Heckingbottom lose the manager’s job at the Leith outfit. Jack Ross was in the dug-out when the Hoops won 2-0 in Glasgow in December.

Lennon, of course, sampled success on his first game back at Easter Road following his departure in January last year. His second game on his return as Celtic gaffer was a Scottish Cup quarter-final in the capital when goals from James Forrest and Scott Brown delivered a 2-0 triumph.
