Champions Rangers will begin their defence of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League title in front of their own fans.

The Gers will start the 2010-11 season on August 14 at home to Kilmarnock.

Rangers' Old Firm rivals Celtic are the first opponents for Inverness on their return to the top flight - Terry Butcher's Irn-Bru Division One champions have home advantage in the August 14 opener.

The Old Firm matches take place on October 23 and February 19 at Parkhead, and New Year's Day at Ibrox.

The first Edinburgh derby is at Hibernian on November 6. New Year's Day sees the two shape up at Tynecastle, with the third clash at Hibernian's home on April 2.

Kilmarnock also provide the opposition for Rangers at Ibrox in the final round of fixtures before the league splits, on April 16, when Celtic are at St Johnstone.
