Scottish football’s top four leagues return this weekend as the Premiership, Championship and Leagues One & Two return after the summer break – however, the scheduled Old Firm clash between Celtic and Rangers B on Saturday has been postponed.
The Old Firm B teams were set to go head-to-head for the first time in the Lowland League, having kicked off their own league season a few weeks ago, but a clash with Airdrie’s opening day fixture has led to the postponement of the Old Firm.
Celtic B are sharing the Penny Cars Stadium with the Diamonds this season, playing second-fiddle to Ian Murray’s side’s fixture list.
With Rangers playing their games at Dumbarton’s C&G Systems Stadium, there was the possibility that the fixture could have been reversed as the sons are away from home this weekend.
However, the game has instead been cancelled – leaving David McCallum’s Rangers side with a little bit longer to wait after their 100% record was ended in midweek by Civil Service Strollers.
Celtic B have found things a little bit tougher in the Lowland League so far, losing their opening fixture to Bonnyrigg Rose then drawing with East Kilbride before blitzing Stirling Uni 5-1 earlier this week.
The young Hoops’ next fixture will come on August 4 when they host Berwick Rangers – while the Light Blues having to wait until August 8 to welcome Ibrox legend Ian Durrant and East Kilbride.
There is no date currently scheduled for the rearranged fixture – with Rangers B due to host their Old Firm rivals on January 1 at Dumbarton.
