Kenny Shiels: Kilmarnock manager waiting for confirmation of who his team will play first
Kilmarnock do not know the identity of their first SPL opponents after they were drawn to play 'Club 12' on 4 August.
The 'newco' Rangers will be the visitors to Rugby Park if they are voted into the SPL by rival clubs, though there is the possibility either Dunfermline or Dundee could provide the opposition.
Killie's first two away trips are to the Highlands, to take on Inverness on 11 August and newcomers Ross County on 1 September.
And Kenny Shiels takes his side to Celtic Park to tackle the champions on 27 October.
Boxing Day brings a home game against Hearts, and the pre-split season ends with another visit to Ross County and a return home to tackle 'Club 12'.
