THE BIG STORY: Celtic's Scottish Premiership fixtures for 2017-18 were released this morning, and for the second season in a row our opening fixture will be against Hearts, pencilled in for Saturday the 5th of August. Other fixtures of note:

  • The first 'Old Firm' derby of the season is set for the 23rd of September
  • Neil Lennon returns to Celtic Park as Hibs manager a week later, the 30th of September
  • Our first game against last year's runners-up Aberdeen is set for the 25th of October, a game which new Celt Jonny Hayes is excited about
  • The New Year Glasgow derby is scheduled for the 30th of December

You can see a full list of the fixtures here.

OTHER NEWS: As predicted on the site, it seems that Celtic won't take any tickets for our proposed trip to Belfast to face Linfield on the 14th of July due to security concerns.
