The 12 clubs agreed to bring the winter break forward after the Scottish Government brought in restrictions on crowds for large-scale events. The lifting of the 500-person cap coincided with the start of a full round of midweek fixtures in the top flight.

Due to Hibs’ involvement in the Scottish Cup fourth round on Thursday, their clash with Celtic at Parkhead was scheduled for Monday. And it wasn’t a great evening for the Easter Road side. Shaun Maloney's men were forced to rue a great chance passed up by Kevin Nisbet in the opening minutes as the home side ran out comfortable 2-0 winners.

New signings Reo Hatate and Daizen Maeda endeared themselves to the Celtic support with the former earning man of the match and the latter opening the scoring. Josip Juranovic added the second from the spot.

“When you get to know him he is a very, very determined young man," Postecoglou said of Hatate. “He shows signs of reaching the very top of the game. He doesn’t just want to enjoy the ride, he has some sights and ambition to be the best player he can be and reach the top.”

Tonight sees the ten other teams in action with Aberdeen hosting Rangers in the live game.

Meanwhile, there are under two weeks until the close of the January transfer window. Monday saw Tony Watt complete his move to Dundee United from Motherwell having signed a pre-contract agreement.
