The experienced whistler will take charge of the fixture for the first time since the 2019 Betfred Cup final. He will be assisted by Frank Connor and Sean Carr, while Kevin Clancy is the fourth official.

The game remains in the balance with the Scottish Government in talks with both clubs amid concerns fans will breach Covid-19 restrictions after last week’s title celebrations by Rangers supporters.
