Andrew Dallas will make his Edinburgh derby debut when he oversees the clash at Easter Road on Tuesday 24 October.

He made headlines after taking charge of Celtic’s 1-0 win over Dundee at the weekend after Dark Blues boss Neil McCann claimed the whistler should have awarded the visitors a penalty at Parkhead.

Dallas was the man in the middle for Norway’s 8-0 win over San Marino earlier this month and also took charge of Zlin’s Europa League clash with FC Sheriff in September.
