The broadcaster will also be showing Rangers’ first trip to Aberdeen. The game has been moved back a day to Sunday, 25 September, with a 12 noon kick-off and comes exactly a week after Aberdeen’s trip to Dundee (1pm kick-off), another match to chosen for Sky Sports coverage.

On the same day BT Sport will show Celtic’s trip to Inverness. The channel will also broadcast an early kick-off on 20 August as St Johnstone host Celtic and a Friday night contest between Kilmarnock and Rangers at Rugby Park the following weekend.
