CELTIC face a High Noon Sunday showdown with former skipper Scott Brown and Aberdeen at Pittodrie in October after a massive fixture reshuffle.

The Hoops have been handed a host of new dates for their Premiership fixtures following their successful bid to reach the Europa League group stages.

The encounter with Livingston in West Lothian has been pushed back for the group stage trip to Seville to face Real Betis on September 16 by 24 hours to Sunday, September 19 at 3pm.

Bayer Leverkusen are due in Glasgow on September 30, which now means the visit to face the Dons has been switched to Sunday, October 3 at midday in a clash which will be televised live by Sky Sports.

A trip to Dens Park has also been moved to allow an extra day of preparation following the trip to Hungary to take on Ferencvaros. The game will now be played on November 7 at 3pm.

The return fixture against the Germans on November 25 has seen one-time onfield leader Brown’s return to Parkhead with his Dons team-mates pushed back to Sunday, November 28 at 3pm.

Motherwell’s trip to the east end of Glasgow will also be switched to December 12 accommodate the clash with Betis at home.
