Celtic's home game against Hibs in January has been rescheduled after a club request.

The SPFL confirmed the fixture change this afternoon.

The game had originally been set to be played in a 3pm kick-off, on Saturday January 9. But after a request was lodged with authorities, it will now be played on Monday evening, of January 11.

It comes amid pressure on Hoops boss Neil Lennon after a string of poor performances and results, with just two wins in 10 games.

Hibs, one of the sides to take points off the champions recently, managed a 2-2 draw at Easter Road earlier this month. Jamie Murphy and Kevin Nisbet had Jack Ross's men in front before Odsonne Edouard nicked one back.

Diego Laxalt bagged a late equaliser.
