Who is the referee for Celtic v Aberdeen and Livingston v Rangers? All SPFL Premiership games this weekend plus Scottish Cup selection
Officials have been appointed to a weekend brimming with top tier action in the cinch Premiership from leaders Rangers, to bottom side Ross County. © Referee appointments for this weekend's Scottish fixtures After last weekend’s Premier Sports Cup semi-finals resulted in a reduced card for the top flight, a full list of fixtures for Scotland’s top division ensures everyone returns to competitive football this weekend. © Friday, November 26, 2021. Kick off 7.45pm.
Why does it matter?
Rangers can extend their lead at the top of the table with a win – and prolong the winning start to the Ibrox managerial career of Giovanni van Bronckhorst who has yet to drop points in any competition he has presided over. A win would restore the seven-point cushion they enjoyed over Celtic for 24 hours midweek with Ange Postecoglou’s side in Dundee to face United on Sunday lunchtime.
It could also give Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack more game-time. Giovanni van Bronckhorst confirmed the midfielder was fit enough to be among the matchday squad on Saturday.
For James McPake’s Dark Blues, they can continue their upturn on form and move further away from the bottom of the table – they are ninth with 16 points – two off sixth placed Hibernian.
