How to watch Hibs v Celtic as Easter Road side continues pursuit of European football
and live on Freeview channel 276
Lee Johnson’s side hosts the league champions on Wednesday May 24 at 7.45pm and while the match is something of a dead rubber for the visitors, who won the title at the weekend following a 2-0 victory over Hearts at Tynecastle, the Capital club will still be pursuing European football with third, fourth, and possibly fifth in the table resulting in qualification for continental competition.
Hibs have confirmed that the match will get the pay-per-view treatment with the match being shown live on Hibs TV and available for those in the UK and Ireland as well as around the world at a cost of £12.99. Commentary will be provided by regular matchday voice Cliff Pike and Hibs Women captain Joelle Murray.
The last encounter in Edinburgh finished 4-0 to Celtic, Daizen Maeda and Kyogo Furuhashi on target along with a brace from Aaron Mooy. Hibs have a decent home record against the Hoops in the league with two wins, two defeats, and six draws in the previous ten matches in EH7.
Neither side could find a winner in the last meeting to take place in May but with Hibs contesting the Scottish Cup final a week later and Celtic already crowned champions, the visitors rotated their side while Jack Ross also made numerous changes to his XI, as current first-team coach and two-time caretaker manager David Gray and goalkeeper Ofir Marciano played their final matches in green and white. The fixture was also former Hibs youngster Scott Brown’s final game for Celtic before transferring to Aberdeen.
