Back to the domestic business for a few weeks, thankfully, and Celtic’s run of games until the next international break will be coming thick and fast.
Here’s the run in til Scotland do something stupid again in October:
Ross County (A) - Sep 12 - 3pm
St Mirren (A) - Sep 16 - 7.45pm
Livingston (H) - Sep 19 - 3pm
Europa League Jobber (A) - Sep 24 - Midnight.
Hibs (H) - Sep 27 - 3pm
St Johnstone (A) - Oct 2 - 7.45pm
The game won’t be televised and you’d have to be a mug to pay money to Ross County TV, so it’ll be back to the 90’s/ early 2000’s and listening to it on the radio, or if you’re a wideo, IPTV is an option if you have the right contacts.
Tomorrow’s game will also see some fans being allowed back into the stadium to spectate, as part of a test event.
Sports Minister Joe Fitzpatrick said, of this particular pilot:
‘No final decision has yet been taken regarding the general resumption of stadia events with restricted numbers of spectators and nothing should be taken for granted at this stage.
“However, the Scottish Government has agreed that the Scottish Professional Football League can hold two pilot events, each with 300 home supporters only, on 12 September.
“A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes in recent months to create the protocols and testing regimes to allow top-level professional sport in Scotland to resume, and this arrangement follows extensive discussions with the Scottish FA, SPFL and clubs about public safety – particularly in relation to physical distancing and hygiene measures.’
Six months on, this situation is still extremely strange and frustrating, but this is better than nothing.
A shoot prediction will be on the way tonight or tomorrow!
