Should Rangers get within five points of their rivals then the match in Glasgow, scheduled to take place on Wednesday 17 May, will have huge ramifications in the battle for second place.

On the same night, Hearts will travel to St Johnstone looking to better Tommy Wright’s men in the race for fourth spot and potential qualification for next season’s Europa League.

Celtic will finish their title-winning campaign at home to Hearts on Sunday 21 May, where they’ll parade the Ladbrokes Premiership trophy.

The previous day should see a highly competitive battle in the bid to avoid relegation. Bottom-placed Inverness CT are due to finish their season against Motherwell, the side currently occupying the play-off spot.

Hamilton Accies will host Dundee, while Ross County travel to Kilmarnock.

Sky Sports and BT Sport will broadcast eight post-split fixtures between them, the first of which will be the return of the Highland derby to our screens as Inverness travel to Ross County on Friday 28 April with a 7.45pm kick-off.

It’s the first of two consecutive weeks Inverness will find themselves in front of the cameras. They’ll host Hamilton the following Saturday, a 12.15pm kick-off on Sky Sports.

Celtic will have four of their final five remaining games screened live as they look to complete an unbeaten league season.
