St Johnstone vs Celtic Match Preview
Celtic are back in control of the Scottish Premiership title race and should ensure that remains the case with a straightforward success away to St Johnstone.
After winning 3-0 at home to Ross County on Saturday – which was the scoreline we predicted as we landed all three recommended bets on the game at odds of 19/4, 10/3 and 13/10 – the reigning champions were given a boost when Rangers lost at Hearts the next day.
It now means that if Rangers win their game in hand, they will be two points behind Celtic instead of moving ahead of them – unless either team slips up in the meantime, of course.
That Rangers catch-up fixture is against St Johnstone, who are Celtic’s hosts on Wednesday. After a poor start to the campaign, Saints have hit a much better run of form and been much more solid defensively – certainly compared to when they lost 7-0 to Celtic back in August!
The aim for Tommy Wright’s side will be to climb into the top six of the table before the league splits in the spring, while they will also fancy their chances of a lengthy Scottish Cup run having been drawn against Championship club Ayr United in the round of 16.
However, Celtic have returned from the winter break with a trio of victories and this is backed to be another that will ensure they keep their biggest rivals Rangers at arm’s length in their quest to make it nine league triumphs in a row.
