Celtic this afternoon discovered their post split fixtures for the Scottish Premiership after the SPFL announced all the dates for the remaining post split matches.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of the post-split fixtures and we are all looking forward to an exciting conclusion to the season, with the race for European places and the battle to avoid relegation set to go down to the wire.
