Indeed, the Hoops have been a huge disappointment so far this season as they seem to be taking a step backwards under Brendan Rodgers at this moment in time.
Although, the Glasgow side will be looking to extend their domestic run when they take on a struggling St. Johnstone side at McDiarmid Park. It’s important that Celtic continue to grind out positive results to put pressure on the teams above them, with a third successive treble still in their sights.
Of course, picking up maximum points and title rivals slipping up would be the ideal situation.
With that in mind, here is the perfect weekend for the Hoops…
HEARTS SLIP UP
Hearts of Midlothian have been the standout performers in the Scottish Premiership this season as they currently find themselves at the top of the table, with their unbeaten record still intact.
However, the league leaders face Celtic’s bitter rivals Rangers this weekend in what will be a massive fixture in the race for the title. Surprisingly, seeing a Rangers win this weekend may not be the end of the world for supporters, with a negative result for Hearts opening the door for the Hoops to close the gap.
