Hibs-Queens moved to Sunday – because Rangers are on TV

Have your say

Hibs’ final game of the Championship season against Queen of the South at Easter Road has been put back from Saturday, April 30 to the next day to accommodate Rangers’ trip to St Mirren being shown live on television.

BT Sport have chosen to screen what many will see as a meaningless match in Paisley and, as a consequence, the entire Championship fixture list that weekend will now take place on Sunday, May 1, with 12.30pm kick-offs.

The move, said the SPFL, was to “ensure all games kick off at the same time”.
