Celtic begin at Hearts


Celtic will begin the defence of their Scottish Premiership title with a trip to Hearts on the weekend of August 6-7.

The defending champions had been scheduled to play Partick Thistle on August 13 but the match will be rearranged as they are due to face Inter Milan in a friendly to mark the 50th anniversary season of their 1967 European Cup triumph.

The 2016-17 season marks the return of Rangers to the Scottish top-flight after three promotions in four years and the Championship winners will begin their campaign at home to Hamilton, while last season's runners-up Aberdeen travel to St Johnstone.

The opening weekend also sees Patrick Thistle host Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Motherwell travel to Kilmarnock and Ross County face Dundee.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers will get his first taste of the Old Firm rivalry when Rangers travel to Celtic Park on September 10.

The winter break will begin after the New Year games and will conclude on January 28.

Scottish Premiership fixtures August 6:
Partick Thistle v Inverness Caledonian Thistle
Kilmarnock v Motherwell
St Johnstone v Aberdeen
Ross County v Dundee
Heart of Midlothian v Celtic
Rangers v Hamilton Academical
