The decision to switch Celtic’s home match with Dundee United on December 30 from a 7.45pm kick off to 3pm hasn’t gone down well with fans.

While a number of work places will be closed for the week between Christmas and New Year it will still be business as usual for many supporters who’ll be at work while the match is being played.

Over the festive period there are usually a number of changes to kick off times but they are usually made for weekend games or Bank Holidays.

Even though fans can’t sit in their seat to watch the game a 7.45pm kick off is far more convenient for fans that a 3pm Wednesday.

Sunday’s Scottish Cup Final kicks off at 2.15 but being a weekend match that is getting shown on BBC1 the kick-off time barely matters.

Next Wednesday Celtic host Ross County with a 6pm kick off, on December 26 they are at Hamilton Accies with a 3pm kick off with that match being shown live on Sky Sports.
