Hibs post-split fixtures revealed as route to third place and Europe is mapped out
Hibs have learned their five post-split Scottish Premiership fixtures as they aim to secure third place and European football next season.
The Easter Road side was joined in the top six by Rangers, Celtic, Aberdeen, Livingston, and St Johnstone following the completion of the weekend’s games with Jack Ross’ side seven points clear of the Pittodrie side in the race to be crowned “best of the rest”.
The Capital club also enjoys a better goal difference than the currently managerless Dons which could be vital going into the remaining five games of the campaign.
First up for the Hibees is a trip to Ibrox on Sunday April 11, before a Wednesday night home match against Livingston on April 21.
Hibs then host St Johnstone on Saturday May 1 before another midweek trip, this time to Aberdeen on Wednesday May 12.
The final match of the league season for the Easter Road side is a home match against Celtic fixed for 12.30pm on Saturday May 15.
None of Hibs’ fixtures have been initially selected for television broadcast but the SPFL has indicated that this could yet change.
Aberdeen have consecutive away games to begin with, with trips to St Johnstone and Celtic preceding a home game against Celtic.
They then travel to Livingston before finishing the season with a trip to Ibrox to face Rangers after their midweek meeting with Hibs.
