Celtic Confirm Three Post World Cup Fixture Amendments

Celtic have this afternoon confirmed three fixture amendments, two in the second half of December and the other for the trip acorss the city to play theRangers at Ibrox at the start of 2023. All three changes are due to the usual reason, the matches have been selected for live broadcast by Sky Sports.

The games Scottiish Premiership matches affected are the trip to Pittodrie to play Aberdeen on Saturday 17 December, this match will now kick-off at 12.30 pm, then the league match at Easter Road on Wednesday 28 December, this one will kick-off at 8 pm and finally the cinch Premiership game against theRangers at Ibrox on Monday 2 January 2023.

Three hugely important games for Celtic and hopefully we’re in top form at that stage of the season. The team will have been in Australia for the Sydney Super Cup – which hopefully will be on display in the Boardroom at Celtic Park, and will have been to Portugal for the winter training camp ahead of the action resuming after the World Cup.

The first match back is that trip to Pittodrie on 17 December.

Our view – Celtic fans at Pittodrie back in February, it was a cold night where the top of the league looking down on theRangers chant started….

Before all that though we have this intense run of matches up to the break and the most immediate challenge is a trip to McDiarmid Park, in Perth tomorrow lunchtime to play a St Johnstone side which seems much more effective than last season when they had to win a play-off against Inverness Caley Thistle to retain their Premiership status. That came after they became the most successful club in Scottish football during the Covid lockdown, winning both the Scottish Cup and the League Cup.
