'Can we lose?' - Celtic fans react to SPFL fixtures announcement
Celtic fans have reacted to the long-awaited announcement of the post-split Scottish Premiership fixtures by hoping that the Hoops drop points in their first match against Hibernian.
If the Bhoys draw or lose at Easter Road on the 21st of April, they could well have the possibility of winning the title against bitter rivals Rangers at Celtic Park eight days later.
This has lead to the bizarre sight of some Hoops fans on social media hoping that the Bhoys drop points to Neil Lennon’s side in order to have an Old Firm title party.
The Hoops announced their fixtures a short time ago on the club’s official Twitter page.

The last time the Bhoys had the chance to win the title against their bitter Glasgow rivals was in 2012, when they travelled to Ibrox for a match prior to the split taking place, but lost 3-2.
The Bhoys did win the title at Ibrox in 1967, and the fans will be hoping for a repeat 51 years later.
