Scottish Premiership TV fixtures: BT Sport reveals August 19/20 picks

Rangers will be hoping they can improve on last season’s 78-point haul to challenge Celtic for the Scottish Premiership crown as Steven Gerrard enters his second year in the Ibrox hot seat.

The Gers have made a number of smart additions over the course of the summer, adding the likes of Sheyi Ojo, Joe Aribo and Jordan Jones to their young, hungry squad.

And with Celtic in danger of losing a number of the team’s key performers, the 2019/20 season could provide a real opportunity for Rangers to bounce back into serious championship contention.

Gerrard’s men will be live on BT Sport for the first time on Sunday 25th August, travelling to St Mirren to face Jim Goodwin’s relegation battlers in a 12.15pm kick-off.

The Saints narrowly avoided the drop last season after beating Dundee United on penalties in the Scottish Premiership play-off and will hope to avoid a similar scare this season.

Five days later, the BT Sport cameras head to Tannadice Park for a mouthwatering Scottish Championship showdown between Dundee United and neighbours Dundee.

Both clubs suffered agony last season as Dundee United’s Championship promotion hopes were scuppered in the playoffs while relegated Dundee finished rock bottom of the Premiership to drop back down to the second division.

However, the result now means fans are set to be treated to one of the most historic rivalries in British football as the two former European giants clash on Friday 30th August in a 7.45pm kick-off.

Before all that, Scottish football fans can sink their teeth into six Betfred Cup games exclusively live on BT Sport this July.
