Celtic supporters are facing a difficult mid-week trip up to Dingwall in the cold of December after the SPFL confirmed fixture changes today.

Due to Celtic’s participation in the Scottish League Cup semi-final, matches from the weekend of 20/21 November had to be moved by the league.

The means the away match against Ross County will now be on Wednesday 15th December at 7:45 pm.

In what could be a huge night of Scottish Premiership action, Celtic will play the match at the same time as Rangers, who host St Johnstone.

Midweek fixtures away to the likes of Ross County or Aberdeen are never ideal given the travel time involved. Those looking to attend will have to take time off of work or other commitments if they wish to attend.

A trip up the A9 on a winter night for thousands of travelling fans is hardly something to savour either!

Likewise, when it comes to Celtic on the pitch, an evening match in the Scottish Highlands in the dead of winter will take adjusting to for Ange Postecoglou’s team.

However, these are the trials you go through if you want to compete on multiple fronts. Getting to Hampden to face St Johnstone is more important for Celtic’s season than complaining too much about a fixture change.

It does mean that the Bhoys will play three away matches in a row during December, with visits to St Mirren and St Johnstone following on the 18th and 26th.

The form of Postecoglou’s team on the road will have to be far better then than that it is right now, with no points to speak of away from home in the top-flight.
