Looking at potential dates, id guess the game will be on either Tuesday 2nd or Wednesday 10th April.

Slight off chance of Wednesday 3rd but that'd give them a day less to prepare for the Old Firm game.

Hopefully find out tomorrow.

They may have to take into account Sky's rights to screen the rearranged game. On the 2nd and 3rd Sky have almost no football coverage, only showing one English League 1 game. That week the English Premier have a card but it is TNT's week for showing the games. If there is no contractual arrangement between Sky and TNT preventing Sky showing Scottish football that week then those dates would be attractive to SKY and make them a likely choice. With the Old Firm game being on the 7th, the Sunday, then Wednesday the 10th would be the obvious choice that week. SKY, however, seem to be showing every English Championship game that week with most games being on the Wednesday across their channels. TNT have a couple of Champions League games that day. If TV coverage comes into it I reckon with Dundee and Rangers playing on Sat 30th and us playing the next Saturday them on the Sunday the first option of 2nd or 3rd is the most likely.

Sky don't have to show the rearranged game, but given how late we are into the season I'm pretty sure they'll want to.

The game can't be televised against the Champions League, so that would make Wednesday 3rd April highly likely.

Hopefully it doesn't rain on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 9th or 10th.

What's the plan if it does?

Surprised it is that midweek since it clashes with the Champions League and Sky don't normally like to put games on when there is a clash, but I imagine Rangers would have kicked up a fuss if it was before the Old Firm...

Rangers did kick up a fuss re the 3rd because of its proximity to the OF game so 10th it is (up against Champions League games). Who said the OF don't run Scottish football, or should that be ruin?
