Is Celtic Vs St Johnstone on TV? Stream details, kick-off time and team news for Scottish Premiership clash

The Hoops will be looking to build on the momentum of their latest Old Firm success

Celtic will aim to continue the feel-good factor around Parkhead when they host relegation-threatened St Johnstone on Saturday afternoon.

Ange Postecoglou’s league leaders will be determined to build on their momentum after winning last Sunday’s Old Firm derby at Ibrox, which stretched their advantage at the top of the Premiership to six points.

The Hoops are unbeaten in their previous six fixtures in all competitions and haven’t suffered defeat domestically since September 19 - a run of 26 games.

In what is the final round of matches before the post-split fixtures are announced next week, both teams will be desperate to seal maximum points for different reasons.

St Johnstone are locked firmly in a relegation battle at present, with just six points separating the Perth outfit and tenth-placed St Mirren.

Callum Davidson’s side have managed to put a bit of distance between themselves and basement boys Dundee in recent weeks but they face a stiff task at Parkhead having failed to win any of their previous three meetings.

Saints away from this season doesn’t make for good reading - just three victories on the road and they are the only top-flight side not to reach double figures in terms of goals scored.

Last Saturday’s 1-0 victory over top-six candidate Livingston will have been a welcome boost ahead of facing a Celtic side focused on moving one step closer to the title.
