Caley on the opening day

Saints will kick off the new SPL season on August 4 with a home game against Inverness Caley Thistle - but it's another fixture against the Highlanders that is causing some anger.
We were due a home start and we have that, which is fine. The following week we go to the mysterious Club 12 - which may be newco Rangers or may be another club. If it's the former then we will be the first visitors to the new club.
However, in another ridiculous piece of shceduling we find ourselves going to Inverness on Boxing Day for the second time in three years. At least that time it was a Saturday, this time around it's a Wednesday! This idiocy is almost matched with a midweek trip to SPL new boys at the end of November. A home midweek game against Caley Thistle at the end of January isn't exactly great for the visitors either.
The full fixture list is available elsewhere - due to silly rules it can't be reproduced here but I'm sure you can find it easily enough!
