CELTIC will get a final crack at beating Steven Gerrard’s side at Ibrox on Sunday May 2 with a midday kick-off.

The Hoops have dominated the last two encounters with the Govan club without being properly rewarded with a victory.

The nine-in-a-row champions bossed the previous away encounter for an hour before Nir Bitton was red-carded and Callum McGregor unfortunately deflected a right-wing corner-kick past Vasilis Barkas for the only goal of the game.

At least, interim boss John Kennedy saw his side get a point yesterday in the 1-1 draw at Parkhead, where the visitors had a 2-0 success in October last year.

Celtic, once again, had the bulk of possession and most shots on target, but the win they deserved proved elusive once more.

So, as far as the league is concerned, the first Sunday in May will present the opportunity for the team to stop the rot and get that win. Pride is at stake and that should be enough to motivate the players.

The Hoops will have two home games, according to the post-split which was released today, and three away fixtures as they bring down the curtain on a disappointing campaign.

The first match will be in Glasgow against Livingston on Saturday, April 10, and the other home game will be against St Johnstone on Wednesday, May 12.

The three away fixtures see the team play at Pittodrie and Easter Road, as well as Ibrox.
