CELTIC have confirmed a Premiership fixture change with their game against Hearts at Parkhead being moved 24 hours to Sunday August 21 with a 3pm kick-off.
The switch has been arranged with the Tynecastle outfit preparing to face either Linfield or Zurich for a place in the Europa League group stage following the play-off draw earlier this week
Those ties have been scheduled for the Thursdays of August 18 and 25 and will push the league encounter with the champions back from its original Saturday slot. Robbie Neilson’s team will also meet St Johnstone in Edinburgh a week after the clash in the east end of Glasgow.
Ange Postecoglou’s title winners are due to travel to Tayside to take on Dundee United on Sunday August 28 with a midday kick-off.
