Neil Lennon could lead Celtic to the title against former club Hibernian after his side were handed a trip to Easter Road in their first post-split fixture.

Celtic are a maximum of two wins away from their eighth consecutive Ladbrokes Premiership crown and could even clinch it this weekend, if they beat Livingston and Rangers lose at Motherwell on Sunday.

Rangers then travel to face Hearts on 20 April before Celtic make the journey to Edinburgh the following day.

The two Glasgow clubs - who are separated by 13 points - will meet on the penultimate weekend of the season, facing each other in a noon kick-off at Ibrox on Sunday, 12 May.

Bottom two Dundee and St Mirren meet on Tayside on the final weekend of the season. 

Meanwhile Lennon has claimed Scott Brown has "nothing to defend himself for" after being hit with a Scottish Football Association disciplinary charge over the scenes which followed their victory over Rangers.

Brown, who was struck by both Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent during Sunday's game, has been accused of breaching a rule which states players must act in the best interests of football.

Andy Halliday received a post-match red card for remonstrating with Brown over his celebrations in front of the Rangers fans. Halliday's approach to Brown and the ensuing struggle sparked a mass confrontation which has seen both clubs receive an SFA charge.

Lennon told Celtic TV: "My players have been exemplary, absolutely exemplary, under immense provocation themselves.

"Scott Brown has nothing to defend himself for. I think his treatment on the pitch was nothing short of disgraceful.

"He has been elbowed, he has been hit in the face, but he takes it, stands up to it, and comes back for more. That's the character of the man.

"You get the usual nonsense and trying to put the same eggs in one basket. We are totally exempt from any blame for this whatsoever."
