CELTIC is looking forward to another season of Sunday football after its premature elimination from the Champions League qualification.

And it all begins a week on Sunday after the SPFL’s planned clash with Dundee was postponed by 24 hours.


Celtic welcomes Dundee on Sunday 8th August

The Hoops will play against the Czech club Jablonec in qualifying for the Europa League on Thursday evening.

And with a full 48 hours of no play, that means James McPake’s team – with Charlie Adam – will arrive in Glasgow on Sunday.

That’s also a full 24 hours after the Rangers face Dundee’s city rivals Dundee United, with the match in Tannadice scheduled for 12.30pm on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Ange Postecoglou has been chosen by bookies as the second favorite in this season’s sack race and is the first manager to quit his job in the Premiership.

Postecoglou had a setback in Denmark

And Dundee United’s new boss Tam Courts is the favorite to be the first Toplight manager to either get fired or step down in the new campaign.

The new league season kicks off this week with three new managers in the hot seats – Celtic’s Postecoglou, United boss Courts and former SFA performance director Malky Mackay who has taken over the helm of Ross County.

And these three lead McBookie.com’s sack race market. Rookie Tannadice Oberbeleuchter Courts is the favorite with 2/1 to be the first manager to leave his post, followed by the Australian boss of the Hoops with 4/1 and Mackay with 5/1.

Callum Davidson, the two-time St. Johnstone Cup winner, is considered the league’s safest coach.

McBookie.com spokesman Paul Petrie said, “Sack bump markets are always getting a lot of interest from players and they think the new guys are already under pressure.
