Celtic to start new season against Hearts

Ange Postecoglou will travel to Hearts in his first Scottish Premiership game in charge of Celtic, with the opening-day clash at Tynecastle Park live on Sky Sports at 8pm on Saturday July 31.

The former Australia boss signed a 12-month rolling contract at Parkhead after being identified as the club’s top target to replace Neil Lennon following a breakdown in talks with Eddie Howe.

Postecoglou’s first Old Firm experience comes when he faces champions Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday August 28, before Celtic host their arch-rivals at Parkhead on January 2.

The two teams meet for a third time at Ibrox on April 2, with the season then splitting later that month.
