Hibs TV confirm their special deal for Celtic supporters

Hibs TV have confirmed that they have a special deal for Celtic fans when the Hoops visit Easter Road to take on Hibernian in the Premiership.

Saturday’s Premiership game between Celtic and Hibernian at Easter Road is a highly anticipated one. The Hoops have not been in great form as of late, winning just two of their last seven games in all competitions, meaning that they are already chasing the Rangers in the Premiership.

As a result, it goes without saying that the Hoops fans will be interested in catching the game on TV. But unfortunately, Sky Sports has decided to not cover the game, instead sending their cameras to Ibrox to cover the Rangers vs Aberdeen game on Sunday.

Thus, many supporters might end up having to depend on Hibs TV to see their side in action. And their service seems to be preparing for the virtual visiting fans.

The club revealed on their website that the Hoops fans will be able to listen to their own commentary:

David Tanner will be joined in our studio by former Hibs and Celtic midfielder John Collins – with Cliff Pike and Tam McManus on hand to talk you through the action. Celtic supporters will be able to listen to their own commentary.

As things stand they have played two games less than their Glasgow rivals and sit nine points behind them in the table. As a result, it is very important that they win their games in hand to cut down that lead. And anything other than all three points against Hibernian will be a huge blow to their 10IAR hopes even this early in the season.

A win away at Easter Road can prove to be a launching pad for Neil Lennon’s side to bring the season back on track. And it will also put the pressure on the Rangers to produce a result against the Dons on Sunday.

Let’s just hope that the Bhoys are on top of their game on Saturday and have put their recent woes behind them as this could end up being one of the most important games of our season.
