Celtic have confirmed that two crucial away fixtures have been amended at the request of the broadcaster. The games against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park as well as Celtic’s trip to play Dundee United at Tannadice have both been given early slots for Sky Sports.
🗓️ #SPFL FIXTURE AMENDMENTS 🗓️
🆚 St. Johnstone
🏆 Scottish Premiership
📍 McDiarmid Park
⌚ 12 noon

Both games have been moved from a Saturday 3pm kick off to a Sunday 12pm kick off time. It took late goals to get the three points in the games at the respective grounds earlier in the season.
Earlier this week, Celtic brought forward the game against St Mirren in order to take advantage of the free-weekend that was made available by The Scottish Cup being suspended.
Celtic are currently 21 points behind Rangers, albeit with three games in hand. However, the league title looks improbable unless Celtic can summon the form that lead them to the league last year whilst Rangers crumble. Unfortunately, Steven Gerrard’s side have looked impressive this season whilst Celtic have struggled to get any real form going.
