The closing day of the Scottish Premiership season sees an intriguing battle for a European place between Kilmarnock and Aberdeen, as well as final fixtures for champions Celtic and runners-up Rangers.
Steve Clarke’s Killie and Derek McInnes’s Dons both have 64 points going into the final day, but only one club can finish third.
Kilmarnock host Rangers, who are unbeaten in six matches at the end of a resurgent season under Steven Gerrard’s rookie stewardship.
Aberdeen face a tough trip to a fifth-placed Hibernian side unbeaten at Easter Road during manager Paul Heckingbottom’s reign of nearly three months.
The onus is on Aberdeen to produce the better result, with Clarke’s men comfortably ahead on goal difference.
As well as a shot at Europa League football next season, the side finishing third is guaranteed more than £2 million in Scottish Premiership prize money.
Celtic are looking to bounce back from last week’s 2-0 defeat at bitter rivals Rangers when they conclude their season by welcoming Hearts to Celtic Park.
A pot of £25m is split between the 42 Premiership and league clubs, rewarding Celtic with a £200,000 increase on the reward the champions received for lifting the trophy last season.
