One of the biggest matches of the 12 picked is the clash between Hearts and Celtic at Tynecastle on 26 February.

Sky Sports will show that fixture along with Celtic’s trip to St Johnstone and Kilmarnock earlier in the month.

The broadcaster, who recently won exclusive rights to Ladbrokes Premiership games, starting in 2020, will also screen Hibs’ trip to St Mirren and Rangers’ visit of Livingston (both on 27 January).

Their final selection sees Aberdeen square off against Rangers at Pittodrie on 6 February.

BT Sport have taken the first post-winter break fixture on offer, as Rangers travel to Kilmarnock on 23 January. They’ll feature Rangers again on 24 February when Steven Gerrard’s men travel to Hamilton Accies.

Hearts will see two of their away fixtures in February screened on BT Sport: a trip to Kilmarnock and a match with Stephen Robinson’s Motherwell later in the month.

Dundee’s clash with Hibs will also be shown by BT as they are now set to face on 22 February in one of three Friday night football clashes. Killie v Hearts is the other top flight game to get the early weekend treatment, while the other comes from the Championship. In what should prove to be a key clash in the title race, Ayr United will welcome Dundee United in front of the BT Sport cameras.
