Celtic’s participation in the UEFA Europa League sees Brendan Rodgers’ side take on Valencia in Spain on Thursday February 21, forcing their league match with Motherwell to be put back a day from Saturday February 23 to Sunday February 24. That alteration has in turn pushed back the midweek tie at Tynecastle by 24 hours.

The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
