Celtic clash with St Mirren among 4 Scottish Premiership matches moved to last weekend in January

Celtic’s home match with St Mirren is one of four Scottish Premiership fixtures moved to the last Saturday in January as the SPFL takes advantage of a gap in the calendar left by the suspension of the Scottish Cup.

Saturday, January 30 will now see significant action from the top two leagues after all football below the second tier, including all games in the Scottish Cup, have been postponed amid a spike in Covid-19 cases throughout Scotland.

Celtic host St Mirren in a match originally scheduled for March 3. Dundee United against Hibs and St Johnstone’s trip to Kilmarnock, two games pencilled in for February 13, have also been brought forward to January.

The final game of the four is Livingston v Aberdeen. The match was supposed to take place this past Wednesday but was postponed minutes before kick-off due to a waterlogged pitch. A match between the same two sides at Pittodrie has also been brought forward 24 hours to February 2.
