What channel is Celtic v Dundee? Is it on TV? How to watch, kick-off time, referee, VAR

Celtic get their Scottish Premiership title defence back underway on Saturday against Dundee following the international break.

Brendan Rodgers side signed off on a high with a 1-0 win over Rangers at Ibrox ensuring they spent the past fortnight at the top

of the table on 10 points, ahead of Motherwell on goal difference, and four points in front of their Glasgow rivals.

Celtic had been in sticky form prior to the Old Firm fixture with an early exit from the Viaplay Cup owing to a 1-0 defeat at Kilmarnock followed by a goalless draw at home to St Johnstone in the league that led to some booing from a section of fans at full-time.
