Celtic supporters on social media have been venting their fury after the SPFL, on their official website, put off announcing the post-split Scottish Premiership fixtures until early next week.
Some fans feel that by doing this the SPFL are trying to avoid the prospect of the Hoops clinching the title at home against Rangers, which could happen if the fixture is scheduled for the first week after the split.
With the Hoops only three wins away from clinching the title supporters want to know what game the Bhoys could clinch the title at and are upset that the details have not yet been released.
Here are some of the best reactions from twitter to the SPFL’s announcement:
Bottle merchants. Wasn’t that when they had a chance to turn the screw on us in Paradise. Appalling.

An absolute shambles. Can you confirm if the club will be taking up this delay with the SPFL? Why has work only now begun? There were only 2 scenarios of which clubs would be in top 6, why not have both planned out?

Has to be a better way to sort this out quicker!?? Cost of travel from Ireland or wherever, flights, hotels etc.. prices are higher when booking close to game dates..

Fans as always, will be the last to be considered & informed

Shambles. Does @CelticFC find this acceptable?

The SPFL are keen to avoid a repeat of the scenes that took place in 1999, when Rangers defeated Celtic 3-0 to clinch the title at Celtic Park when three players were sent-off and referee Hugh Dallas was hit by a coin.
The Bhoys are scheduled to play three home games after the split, against Rangers, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock, with away trips to the Edinburgh duo of Hibernian and Hearts.
The Hoops take on Dundee on Wednesday night and then Hamilton on Sunday, knowing that six points from the two games will take them one win away from clinching yet another league title.
