Date Change For Next Celtic v Rangers Match

Date Change For Next Celtic v Rangers Match

The date of the next Celtic against Rangers match in March has been switched.

It will be the fourth meeting of the teams this season and the third in the league, with Brendan Rodgers’ men hosting their rivals for the second time.

Celtic beat Rangers 5-1 at home in September before winning 1-0 and 2-1 in the next two games.

They were due to square off on March 11, but that’s now been moved to the 12th – with a 12pm kick-off planned.

Celtic confirmed the change on their official website earlier:

“Celtic have already defeated Rangers 5-1 in the East End of Glasgow as well as at Ibrox and Hampden, in the League Cup, and the third SPFL meeting between the sides will now go ahead at Celtic Park on Sunday, March 12 with a 12noon kick-off time.”

The Saturday to Sunday change shouldn’t be an issue for fans, with a sell-out at Parkhead expected for the game.

There’s actually a scenario that Celtic could beat Rangers and clinch the league title if they continue their unbeaten domestic form between now and then.
