Cup winners St Johnstone start with Ross County trip

St Johnstone will take on Ross County in their Scottish Premiership opener on Saturday, July 31.

Fresh from their Scottish Cup triumph, Callum Davidson’s side start their campaign against new County boss Malky Mackay, after John Hughes’ departure last month.

Motherwell are the first visitors to McDiarmid Park in their next game on August 8, before an opening Tayside derby of the season at home to Dundee United on August 21.

Davidson will have to wait for his side’s first derby of the season against newly-promoted Dundee until October 2, while their first games against Rangers and Celtic fall on September 11 and October 23 respectively. Celtic also travel to McDiarmid Park on Boxing Day.

A trip to Celtic Park rounds off the scheduled fixture list on April 9 before the split, which runs from April 23 to May 14.
