Rangers fans will be able to watch their side's Scottish Premiership trip to Ross County in August on Sky Sports as the broadcaster announces its latest scheduling programme.

Michael Beale's side will also be shown on TV for their visit to St Johnston in September, as will the clash between Livingston and Celtic.

Sky Sports had already confirmed a double-header for Scottish Premiership fans to look forward to on August 5 when champions Celtic begin their campaign against Ross County at Celtic Park. That 12:30 pm kick-off will be followed by the 5:15 pm kick-off between Kilmarnock and Rangers.

Before the Scottish Premiership begins next month, both Rangers and Celtic will take part in busy pre-season schedules.

The Gers are set to play Newcastle United, Hamburger SV, Olympiacos and Hoffenheim before their opening-day visit to Kilmarnock.

Meanwhile, The Bhoys will face Portimonense, Yokohoma FM, Gamba Osaka, Wolves and Athletic Club in a loaded calendar before beginning their title defence against Ross County.

The two Glasgow rivals will first meet for an Old Firm Derby on the fourth matchday of the season, with that fixture confirmed for broadcast by Sky Sports.

The number of fixtures made available for fans by the broadcaster is set to climb in the coming years.

Next season up to 48 cinch Premiership games will be available across Sky Sports' flagship channels, including Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event, plus at least five SWPL matches. From 2024/25, up to 60 cinch Premiership will be live on Sky Sports, in addition to the SWPL.
