Italian job needed from Scots

THE Six Nations returns this fortnight, meaning rugby fans will be out in force.

The annual tournament begins on Friday (February 1) with Wales travelling to Paris to take on France.

The following day should draw in the crowds as Scotland kick off their campaign with a highly favourable start at home against rank outsiders Italy, before a mouth-watering tie between last year’s victors Ireland and Eddie Jones’ England at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

In Scottish football, the Old Firm’s first proper title battle in years continues with Celtic visiting St. Johnstone in a Sunday lunchtime kick off (February 3).

Meanwhile, Rangers face the rough with the smooth as they take on Livingston (January 27), while things get trickier for the Light Blues as they head to the north east to face bitter rivals Aberdeen (February 6) in a clash that will be keenly watched by many.

Across the border, Liverpool are making impressive strides to winning their first league title since 1990 and games such as West Ham away (February 4) will test just how much Jürgen Klopp’s side want the crown.

Elsewhere, Manchester United continue their increasingly impressive renaissance under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær against a struggling Leicester City side, while Manchester City host Arsenal on the same day (February 3).
