The following day, Motherwell, who finished runners-up to the Hoops last season, travel to Easter Road to face Hibernian, live on Sky Sports at 1.15pm.

And Hibs will feature live again seven days later when they face Hearts at Tynecastle (12.05pm) in the first Edinburgh derby of the season.

In the final match of the broadcaster's first SPL release, Jackie McNamara's Dundee United entertain Celtic at Tannadice on Sunday, August 31 (12.45pm).
