Premier Sports will show Celtic against either Falkirk or Arbroath and Cove Rangers’ visit to Ibrox. The matches will be played on either April 3 or 4.

The competition was given the green light to restart along with SPFL lower leagues and the SWPL1 after being suspended by a combination of the SFA and Scottish Government in January.
