What channel is Celtic v Hibs on? Is it on TV? Kick-off time, how to watch, referee and VAR officials

Celtic will look to take another step towards retaining the cinch Premiership title when they entertain Hibs at Celtic Park on Saturday.

Ange Postecoglou’s side are nine points clear at the top of the table with just 10 matches remaining and have been unstoppable at home this season – winning all 14 league fixtures at Parkhead and scoring 44 goals in the process.

It makes for a daunting task for a Hibs side still licking their wounds after a 4-1 defeat to Rangers at Easter Road in their last outing after Lee Johnson’s side had previously enjoyed a seven-match unbeaten run in the Premiership.

Hibs have already been on the end of two heavy defeats to Celtic this season, losing 6-1 at Parkhead in October before suffering a 4-0 reverse on home soil in December, so the onus for them will be on keeping things tight at the back.
