Coverage of the SPL begins on Saturday as Celtic take on Aberdeen live on Sky Sports 2 from 12pm.
Rangers’ first game in the Irn-Bru Third Division, away to Peterhead will also broadcast live on Sky on 11 August.

“We will also follow Rangers as they plot their way back to Scottish football’s top flight.
