Celtic will face Rangers, St. Mirren and Livingston in their next three games. The Hoops are as many as 10 points clear of second-placed and bitter Old Firm rivals Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment. Rangers simply have to win the Old Firm derby at Celtic Park to cling onto their slim hopes of winning the Scottish Premiership, but the most Steven Gerrard's side will get is a draw. Prediction: Celtic 2-2 Rangers St. Mirren are fighting for survival in the Scottish Premiership at the moment, and it is hard to see them pose any kind of threat to Celtic. Prediction: St. MIrren 0-4 Celtic Livingston look set to finish in a respectable position in the Scottish Premiership table this season, but they could make things tricky for Celtic at Celtic Park.
After all, Gary Holt's side will have nothing to lose at Celtic, and that will give them the freedom to take the game to the home team. Premier League football: Manchester City v Cardiff City 7pm, Sky Sports Main Event. SPL football: St Mirren v Celtic 7.15pm, BT Sport 1. Match officials for Celtic's game tonight against St Mirren and the weekends game against Livingston are as follows. After the joy and then stupidity followed by another Glasgow Derby win for the Celts at the weekend, the players and management will be glad to get into some more action.
Manchester City 5-0 Cardiff (17/2 with Sky Bet) - 12.2 per cent of Super 6 players. You want to get off to the perfect start but the stadium is irrelevant if you do not win football matches. Tottenham 3-1 Crystal Palace (11/1 with Sky Bet) - 14.6 per cent of Super 6 players. Rangers 1-1 Hearts (13/2 with Sky Bet) - 10.8 per cent of Super 6 players. St Mirren 1-3 Celtic (11/1 with Sky Bet) - 15.9 per cent of Super 6 players.
EN: I would have taken a draw going into the game but to make such a good start and lose was as bad as it could have got – for Dundee's confidence and, on the flip-side of the coin, St Mirren's. EN: This was the first occasion in a while that I felt previous disappointments (such as the injury time Celtic goal) caught up with them. McIntyre had some experienced players on the bench for the St Mirren game. IR: I have always been a fan of McGowan and I think he would give everything in the next must-win against St Johnstone. Dundee fans will be hoping Andrew Nelson is fresh enough to go again after playing the full game on his comeback at the weekend. IR: It is a good time if you think Saints boss Tommy Wright won't get a reaction out of his own players following their heavy loss at Motherwell. It also left them with a sequence of three games in 12 days against Celtic, all of which were lost. EN: The Celtic games and January signings failing to make an impact would be the two key reasons I'd point to.
