SPL Fixtures Announced

Last updated : 11 July 2005 By Kevin Smith
As expected, Celtic will travel to Fir Park to kick off season 2005/06, in a match which will be covered by Setanta SPL. The opening match will be on Saturday 30th July, with a 12.30 kick off.

It is sure to be an eventful day, with Celts returning to the ground where last season's title was shamefully thrown away. It is an opportunity to put Motherwell Rangers in their place, after the pitiful antics of their fans on that final day.

Celtic's first home game of the new season will be Dundee United the following Saturday, and the next televised match will be away to Rangers on Saturday 20th August.

Other standout fixtures are a boxing day game at home to Livingston and Hearts at Tynecastle on Hogmanay. The final fixture before the split is away to Kilmarnock.
