The Edinburgh derby and Old Firm clash on 29 December had already been selected by the broadcasters.

Rangers will see three more of their games screened live. Their 2 December trip to Hearts will now have a noon kick-off and shown live by BT Sport.

Sky Sports will then show their clash with Dundee at Dens Park the following Sunday, before BT Sport will be in attendance once more for their Sunday 23 December meeting with St Johnstone in Perth.

Celtic have had two of their matches selected, though the good news for fans is that neither of the dates have been moved. Brendan Rodgers’ men travel to Motherwell on 5 December, broadcast by BT Sport, while Sky Sports will show their Sunday 16 December trip to Hibs.

Livingston and Hearts will meet in the other top flight clash to be shown live across the month. The game has been moved forward to Friday 14 December for the BT Sport cameras.

Finally, BT have decided to delve into the Championship for one match, as they’ll show what could prove to be a top of the table clash between Ayr United and Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Friday 7 December.

FULL DETAILS

A further selection from the midweek of December 4/5 may be made following the Betfred Cup semi-finals.
