The SPFL have announced the post-split matches for the final weeks of the Scottish Premiership season – and Rangers fans are absolutely furious with fixtures.
The league confirmed the final five rounds of games on their official Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon.

The Gers kick off by hosting Hearts on April 22nd before a trip to Celtic Park a week later for the final Old Firm clash of the season.
Murty’s side then welcome Kilmarnock on May 5th before finishing the season with back-to-back away trips to Aberdeen then Hibs.
Gers fans have a host of complaints over the fixtures – including being sent to Aberdeen on a Tueday night – as their side battle for second in the table with the Dons.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Chesney got his own way through the press by not getting us at home.

I would love to see the email we sent to the SPFL re the split fixtures. Probably worthy of a big bonus for someone.

The Scottish Premiership’s split has consistently caused problems for clubs with teams often being forced to play 18 games at home and 20 away (or vice versa) rather than the expected 19 home and 19 away.
The Old Firm clash on April 29th could end up being a title decider if Brendan Rodgers’ side can’t secure their seventh successive Scottish Premiership crown the previous week when they face Hibs at Easter Road.
Before the final rounds of fixtures, the Old Firm giants face off in Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden.
