After coming off a surprising shock to Kilmanorck, title defenders Celtic will be looking to respond with a win. The match schedules for Wednesday at the Simple Digital Arena with kickoff at 8 pm.
St, Mirren started their Scottish Premiership on a high note with a 1-0 win over side Livington. The glory did not last long as the side became a victim of 3-0 thrashing to Glasgow giants Rangers last weekend.
It was not an eventful last weekend for Celtic as the side were shocked with a 1-1 draw to Kilmarnock. The side conceded through a penalty shot on the spot with the side holding off the attacking threat for the rest of the match.
Despite being too early in the first phase of the league, Neil Lennon will not contend sitting two points adrift of their rivals Rangers. The side showed a lackluster performance despite an early week preparation for the match.
The trip to the Simple Digital Arena will be a redemption mission for Lennon setting his eyes on Champions League qualifications. The injury to the salt was that their opponents got off to a 3-0 thrashing last weekend.
Even though Jim Goodwin did not expect to get the better part of last season’s runners up, a 3-0 thrashing might have been much. The side only got three shots in the entire game. This weekend the side has another angry giant to ease through.
