The Scottish Premier League will not alter any of Celticâ€™s fixtures when the next stage of the Champions League kicks off.
The Hoops will soon learn who they take on in the Round of 16 of Europeâ€™s premier club competition early next year and there have been calls to ease the Glasgow clubs fixture list around those fixtures.
But SPL secretary Ian Blair said it would be too difficult to make changes to the leagueâ€™s matches to accommodate Celtic.
â€śLogistically, it just isnâ€™t possible to reschedule games at this time,â€ť said Blair.
â€śWithout any interference from the weather, Celtic could potentially find themselves with a backlog of three games.
â€śAnd that doesnâ€™t include the possibility of other Scottish Cup replays, of course.
â€śThe other problem we have is that UEFA donâ€™t allow us to schedule games in the same week as European ties.
â€śIt would benefit Scottish clubs because our coefficient will improve if Celtic can reach the quarter-finals. But we simply canâ€™t have our season ending in September.â€ť
