Champions Celtic begin their title defence at home to Ross County in the opening game of the 2023/24 Scottish Premiership season on Saturday August 5, live on Sky Sports.

Brendan Rodgers has been handed fixtures against Ross County, Aberdeen and St Johnstone in his first month back at Celtic Park as he attempts to emulate Ange Postecoglou's treble-winning exploits of last season.

Celtic travel to Ibrox on September 3 for the first Old Firm match of the season, with Rangers travelling to Parkhead on December 30 - both games will be live on Sky Sports - before a third meeting between the Glasgow rivals on April 6.

Former Celtic defender Mark Wilson expects Celtic to face a tougher test this season from Rangers in the battle to win the Scottish Premiership.

Celtic's first post-split assignment will take place on April 27, with the Scottish Premiership regular season concluding on the weekend of May 18-19.

As well as hoping to continue their domestic dominance, Celtic are targeting an improved performance in the Champions League group stages - after picking up just two points last time out.

Two tricky trips to Edinburgh to face Hearts (October 21) and Hibernian (October 28) bookmark matchday three in Europe's elite competition, while a trip to Dingwall against Ross County (November 4) and home tie against Aberdeen (November 11) are either side of matchday four.
