Rangers begin the new SPL season under Paul Le Guen away to Motherwell, also under a new manager in the shape of Maurice Malpas, on Sunday, 30 July.

Celtic kick off their title defence against Kilmarnock the day before. The Old Firm first meet on 23 September.

Last season's runners-up Hearts open at Dunfermline, while Hibs host Aberdeen and newly promoted St Mirren travel north to play Inverness Caley Thistle.

Falkirk open their campaign against Dundee United at Tannadice.

The first Edinburgh derby is on 14 October when Hearts meet Tony Mowbray's side at Easter Road.

The initial fixture list shows a number of games that have been moved to Sundays for live television.

An SPL statement added: "Additional fixtures will move as a result of live coverage and these will be announced in due course following our discussions with the broadcasters and the police.

"It is likely that the additional live games will either be scheduled for a Monday evening, Friday evening or Saturday lunchtime."
