Following their rip-roaring Scottish League Cup final victory over local rivals Rangers, Celtic are preparing themselves for a potentially tough Scottish Premiership game against St. Mirren.
The Celts are expected to be without former Everton midfielder James McCarthy, Benjamin Siegrist and Stephen Welsh for the game against the Buddies. Additionally, David Turnbull is a doubt – he was on the bench for the Rangers game, but was not brought on. Aside from this, the Bhoys have no new injury concerns ahead of their game against St. Mirren.
In their last Scottish Premiership encounter, Celtic coasted to victory as they beat a struggling Aberdeen outfit by a score of 4-0. Callum McGregor, Reo Hatate and Liel Abada were the goalscorers for the Celts, as Aberdeen failed to find a response.
Meanwhile, St. Mirren played out a draw against ten-man St. Johnstone in their previous league fixture. They almost came away with nothing, despite having the man advantage, but were able to recuse a point thanks to Alex Gogic.
The Celts are enjoying a dominant year in the SPFL this season – perhaps the most dominant season they have had since former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was at the helm.
Celtic will be out for revenge in this game – the last time the two sides met in the league, St. Mirren came away with a 2-0 win thanks to Mark O’Hara and Jonah Ayunga. Will it be repeat or revenge in the reverse fixture?
