Celtic have had dates for two rescheduled Premiership games confirmed.

Although Neil Lennon’s men currently sit 16 points behind Rangers at the top of the league, they have three games in hand due to postponements.

Two of these fixtures have now been added to their 2021 schedule.

First up is the home match against Aberdeen, which was originally pencilled in for Saturday August 15 and had been postponed due to Covid breaches.

The second rescheduled fixture sees St Mirren visit Celtic Park on Wednesday March 3, with that game kicking off at 7.45pm.

The game was first pencilled in for Saturday October 31, but was moved to a late date due to Celtic’s continued participation in 2019/20’s Scottish Cup.

Their last meeting saw Celtic leave Paisley with all three points in September, with Shane Duffy and James Forrest scoring for the champions in a 2-1 win.

Lennon’s side are in league action tonight when they host Ross County.
