There are just two rounds of Scottish Premiership fixtures remaining, with three teams still in danger of automatic relegation.

At the other end of the table, Hearts are away to Rangers on Wednesday, live on Sky Sports, knowing a win could be vital if they are to have any chance of catching Aberdeen in third, with the teams on 52 and 54 points respectively. Hibernian and St Mirren, who have 48 and 46 points in fifth and sixth place respectively, are also still chasing European football for next season. We take a look at what is at stake in the penultimate round of fixtures on Wednesday night… The Sky Sports cameras will be at Ibrox as Rangers host a Hearts side desperate for a victory as they look to finish third in the Premiership for a second successive season.

It will be Rangers’ last home game of the campaign as they look to hold on to their unbeaten record at Ibrox this season. While some players are still trying to prove they deserve to remain at the club, it will be a chance for others to bid farewell to the fans. Celtic are without a win since wrapping up the Scottish Premiership title at Tynecastle Park earlier this month. With the Scottish Cup final looming, Ange Postecoglou will be demanding a better performance after they followed up their defeat to Rangers with a 2-2 draw with St Mirren. Hibernian are a team in need of points to keep their push for European football on track after they lost to Rangers at the weekend. Aberdeen go into Wednesday’s match against St Mirren desperately looking to rediscover some form to guarantee they remain in third. After an impressive run of seven straight wins, the Dons have picked up just one point from their last three league games. St Mirren have managed to beat the Dons twice already this season and will be going all out for another victory as they look to keep their hopes of European football alive. Stephen Robinson’s side will go into the match with confidence after ending Celtic’s winning home run with a 2-2 draw. Jim Goodwin’s side are two points adrift at the bottom and could be relegated if they lose to Kilmarnock and Ross County win their game. Derek McInnes takes Killie to Tannadice Park knowing they will avoid automatic relegation if they do manage to pick up a rare win on the road. But if United win comfortably then it is the Rugby Park side who could find themselves bottom heading into the final day of the season. The task for Ross County is clear – beat St Johnstone and they are safe from automatic relegation. If they lose they could be the team at the bottom with just one game left to play. After back-to-back league wins Malky Mackay’s side lost at Motherwell in their last match, keeping them in the battle at the basement. St Johnstone have nothing to play for after their victory at Kilmarnock guaranteed their top-flight status for another season. With Livingston and Motherwell both safe in the Scottish Premiership for another season, all that is at stake in their match is who will finish top of the bottom six. Striker Kevin van Veen is in formidable form for the Fir Park side having scored in their last nine league matches. Another Saturday, another chance to win £250,000 with Super 6.
