CELTIC OPEN AT HIBS AFTER SPLIT

0

CELTIC will face Hibs at Easter Road in a potential championship decider a week on Saturday after the SPFL finally announced the post-split fixtures.

Brendan Rodgers, with his team 13 points ahead, will lead the champions into the meeting with Neil Lennon’s side knowing that victory will secure a seventh successive Premiership title.

The Hoops drew 2-2 against Hibs in Edinburgh in December after a double from Scott Sinclair had given them a two-goal lead.

At Parkhead, the teams also shared four goals, but a solitary strike from Leigh Griffiths gave Rodgers’ men three points on January 27.

Celtic triumphed 4-2 in the League Cup semi-final in October when substitute Moussa Dembele thumped in two goals.

The following Sunday, April 29, the Parkhead outfit will host Sevco Rangers while seven days later they return to Edinburgh, this time to take on Hearts at Tynecastle.

Rodgers’ team’s Premiership campaign concludes with consecutive home games – Kilmarnock on Wednesday, May 9, and then Aberdeen on Sunday, May 13.
