Brendan Rodgers’ side are just one win away from securing their seventh successive Ladbrokes Premiership title, and they could clinch it against Hibs at Easter Road on April 21 in their first game after the split after the SPFL opted to avoid a potentially title-deciding Old Firm clash.

If they secure the league crown, Celtic will lift the trophy when they finish at home against Aberdeen on May 12, while bottom two Ross County and Partick Thistle are set for what could be a relegation decider in a Friday night fixture on May 4.

An SPFL spokesman said: “We want to thank supporters for the patience they have shown during the compilation of the post-split fixture schedule.

“Working with the 12 clubs, Police Scotland and our broadcast partners to produce a set of fixtures that meets everyone’s requirements can often be a complex and time-consuming process, but fans can now look forward to an exciting conclusion to the Ladbrokes Premiership campaign.”

The final Edinburgh derby of the season has been scheduled for Wednesday May 9 at 7.45pm, live on BT Sport.

The final round of top six fixtures, scheduled for Sunday May 13, sees Celtic play Aberdeen, live on Sky Sports, Hearts travel to Kilmarnock and Hibs host Rangers on BT Sport. All three ties are 12.30pm kick-offs.
