The SPFL will announce the new date for Celtic’s postponed Scottish Premiership match against Dundee on Thursday, according to a reliable journalist.

The Scottish Daily Mail’s chief football writer Stephen McGowan made the revelation on his personal Twitter page after the original was put back on Wednesday morning.

“Likely SPFL will confirm new date for rearranged Celtic Dundee game tomorrow,” the journalist said.

The postponement of the match against Dundee on Wednesday due to snow has caused the Hoops a bit of a problem.

They saw their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table shrink to six points following Rangers’ 4-1 victory over St Johnstone.

They will want to increase the lead to nine points as soon as possible, but that can’t happen for the time being due to the call off.

There is also the complication of the Hoops’ next game, which is meant to be against Morton in the Scottish Cup at Celtic Park on Saturday.

There already must be a doubt about that game due to the adverse weather in Glasgow, and there is a chance the Hoops could go in the Old Firm derby on March the 11th after not having played for a fortnight.

Brendan Rodgers and his players will want the Dundee match played as soon as possible, but it is the SPFL who will have the final say.
