The experienced whistler last took charge of an Edinburgh derby back in August 2014 as Hearts won 2-1 at Tynecastle. Collum awarded two penalties and sent off two players, one from each side, while there was retrospective bans for Jamie Walker and Lewis Stevenson.

Meanwhile, Andrew Dallas, fresh off officiating a controversial clash between Hearts and Motherwell last weekend, has been announced as the referee for Rangers v Morton.
