CELTIC and Rangers have both switched Premiership dates next month and March to accommodate live TV coverage on Sky Sports.

Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox side, 21 points ahead of the champions who have three games in hand, will take on Hamilton Accies at New Douglas Park on Sunday, February 7 with a midday kick-off.

A week later, Neil Lennon will take his team to McDiarmid Park for a meeting with St Johnstone who took a point from their Glasgow confrontation last month in a 1-1 draw. That will also be a noon start.

On February 28, the Gers will be live on screen again when they go to West Lothian in their pursuit of three points in their bid for their first title in a decade.

On Sunday, March 7, the Parkhead side will play their second game at Tannadice in this campaign after a late goal from Albian Ajeti – his first for the club since his £5million summer arrival from West Ham – downed Dundee United 1-0 in August.

Confirmation of the changes:

Sunday February 7

Hamilton Accies v Rangers (12)

Sunday February 14

St Johnstone v Celtic (12)

Sunday February 28

Livingston v Rangers (12)

Sunday March 7

Dundee United v Celtic (12)
