Sky Sports is the only broadcaster to offer live coverage of the Scottish Premiership with new pundits and presenters.
The channel will be showing six more top flight fixtures live in January, including Rangers vs Aberdeen and Celtic vs Hibernian, with Celtic’s trip to Rangers in January also live on TV.

Cameras will be at their games against Livingston (January the 20th with a 4:30pm kick off time) and St Mirren (January the 24th with a 8:15pm kick off time).

We have got a really hard couple of months ahead, major test of mentality and I reckon by the end of Jan we will know whether we are champions or not 👏🏼🇬🇧💙

3 tough away games, but I think if we come out of that with 9 points the league may just be over.

Get what you’re saying mate it’s unfair but to sky it’s all about viewing figures. Harsh way the world works. Even people down south will tune into OF games.
