Celtic remain on course to pick up yet another Scottish title at the end of 2017/18 although recent slip-ups have given chasing duo Aberdeen and Rangers hope that they remain in with a chance to grab the crown from under Celtic’s noses. In reality, this is extremely unlikely and the Hoops will look to put such notions out of the picture when they face Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Sunday afternoon. Despite picking up just a single point in their last two league games, Brendan Rodger’s men remain dominant on the domestic scene and while they have a mere three days to recover from what looks set to be a tough Europa League clash in St Petersburg on Thursday evening (result not known at time of writing), we expect them to give a good account of themselves against the Dons this weekend.
Rangers have been far from convincing this season and on home soil they are hard to back with any confidence. Can they find a way past Heart of Midlothian on Saturday afternoon? They desperately need to should they wish to finish in the top-two this term.
Kilmarnock and Hibernian go head-to-head in the lunchtime kick-off match on Saturday with both sides enjoying some excellent form of late. Hibs have been something of a surprise package this season and it is hard to go against them given their recent form both at home and away.
Elsewhere, Dundee and Motherwell will be looking to further distance themselves from the drop zone in what is a pretty tight bottom-half of the league table, while Ross County will be confident of continuing their decent form of late when they travel down the A9 to take-on a St Johnstone outfit which continues to struggle on the goal-scoring front. Hamilton and Partick Thistle remain close to the foot of the table and they lock horns at New Douglas Park in a match which could determine who will be condemned to a relegation dog-fight towards the end of the season.
Who will be the winners and losers in this weekend’s Scottish Premiership games? Here’s what we think…
