The 2016/17 SPFL league season kicks off on Saturday, with a host of big games across all four divisions – we pick out six to watch on the opening weekend.
Rangers v Hamilton Academical - Ladbrokes Premiership (Saturday)
Rangers will be presented with the flag for winning the Championship before the Saturday lunchtime clash at Ibrox, live on Sky Sports at 12.30pm. Mark Warburton's side are rated an 11/4 shot to go on and win the title in their first season back in the top flight. Rangers and Accies, who were 10th in the Premiership last term, have made good starts and are through to the last 16 of the Betfred Cup.
Falkirk v Hibernian - Ladbrokes Championship (Saturday)
There's a cracking match in prospect as title favourites Hibernian travel to play a Falkirk side who beat them in the play-offs last season. Neil Lennon replaced Alan Stubbs during the summer and the Scottish Cup holders will be determined to clinch promotion at the third time of asking but this looks a close one to call as four of the six meetings in 2015/16 were drawn.
St Mirren v Morton - Ladbrokes Championship (Saturday)
Morton finished a point ahead of their Renfrewshire rivals in 2015/16 but St Mirren had the upper hand in the derby matches, with two wins and two draws. Both clubs will aiming to push on towards the play-offs in the coming season and opening day in Paisley will be a good chance to lay down a marker.
Alloa Athletic v Peterhead - Ladbrokes League 1 (Saturday)
Alloa are title favourites after dropping down from the Championship and have made a terrific start to 2016/17, with four wins out of four in the Betfred Cup. The Wasps now face Inverness Caley Thistle in the last 16 while Peterhead, who reached the play-offs last season and topped their Betfred Cup section, face Rangers at Ibrox.
Edinburgh City v Forfar Athletic - Ladbrokes League 2 (Saturday)
Edinburgh City won the Lowland League then beat Cove Rangers and East Stirlingshire in play-offs to seal their place in the SPFL. Gary Jardine's side begin their campaign at Meadowbank Stadium against Gary Bollan's Forfar, who will be looking for an immediate return to League 1 following relegation.
Heart of Midlothian v Celtic - Ladbrokes Premiership (Sunday)
Celtic have a good record at Tynecastle but will be put to the test by a Hearts side who finished third last season. Brendan Rodgers' first Premiership game in charge is live on Sky Sports on Sunday, kick-off 2.15pm, and follows the lunchtime clash between St Johnstone and Aberdeen on BT Sport. It was 3-1 Celtic on their last visit to Gorgie while it finished 2-2 back in December.
