Hearts will play their first four Premiership games away from home as building work continues at Tynecastle.

Kilmarnock and Motherwell have agreed to fixture switches as the Edinburgh club construct a new main stand.

The redeveloped stadium is scheduled to be ready for the visit of Aberdeen on 9 September.

Ian Cathro's side are scheduled to travel to Celtic Park to meet the champions on the opening weekend and then go to Ibrox a fortnight later.

Hearts' home fixture against Kilmarnock will now be played at Tynecastle on 4 November, with Motherwell visiting on 9 December.

Hearts played their final three league games on the road last season as work started on the project, finishing in fifth place.
