Celtic fixture moved after broadcasters make request

Celtic’s trip to Rugby Park to face Kilmarnock has been moved at the behest of Sky Sports. The broadcasters have asked for the game between the Scottish Champions and Alex Dyer’s resurgent Killie to be brought forward by 24 hours from February 3 to February 2.

Earlier this week, Celtic’s home game against Aberdeen on February 17 was brought forward on Friday to 6pm from the scheduled 7pm start to avoid a clash with UEFA Champions League ties scheduled for that night.

With a 19 point gap in the league, the Premiership table doesn’t make for great viewing at the half way mark for Celtic – even if Neil Lennon’s men have three games in hand. The three games in hand are must wins if Celtic are to win the league title – every game is a must win. Rangers face a tough run of fixtures this month but Lennon’s side need to win nineteen games in a row if they are to win the league. In doing so, Rangers will drop four points across their remaining games outside the Celtic clashes owing to the pressure. There is no need to worry about what they do, Celtic can only focus on themselves and hope that their winning of games is enough to create panic at Ibrox.
