The date has been changed for the next Celtic v Rangers clash, with the match being moved to Sunday 12 March for live TV coverage.

The game, originally scheduled for 11 March, will be shown live on Sky Sports with a noon kick-off.

Celtic have won the three previous matches against the Ibrox side this season, most recently coming from behind to win 2-1 away on Hogmanay.

Brendan Rodgers’ men won the opening game between the sides 5-1 at Celtic Park in October then edged the Betfred Cup semi-final 1-0 at Hampden.

Celtic are currently 19 points clear of second-placed Rangers at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership and have a game in hand.

The new date for the game is part of a raft of changed dates announced by the SPFL for TV coverage.

Other notable live games for braodcast include a third Friday night clash of the season between Dundee United and Hibs, with the sides now meeting at Tannadice on 10 March.

Aberdeen’s home game with Hearts has been moved to a lunchtime kick off on Saturday 18 March.

Celtic are involved in three more Sunday games, away at Dundee on 19 March, away at Hearts on 2 April and away at Ross County on 16 April.
