St Mirren vs Celtic: How to watch Scottish Premiership fixture on TV, live stream, kick-off time and team news

The Hoops have been in formidable form in the Scottish Premiership so far this season.

Celtic are bidding for a seventh league win from as many matches when they make the short trip to the SMiSA Stadium to take on St Mirren for a lunchtime kick-off on Sunday.

The Scottish champions are seeking to maintain their perfect start to the Premiership season after an emphatic start to their title defence.

Ange Postecoglou’s side were in action in Warsaw on Wednesday evening as they were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Matchday 2.

Celtic now switch their attention back on domestic duty as they look to build on their impressive opening six victories and strengthen their lead over Rangers at the top of the table.

St Mirren have endured a mixed start to their campaign, suffering defeats to Motherwell and Aberdeen in their first two fixtures before sealing a narrow win over Ross County.

That result sparked a mini revival with eyecatching wins over Dundee United and Hibernian before crashing to a 3-0 loss against St Johnstone earlier this month.

Nonetheless, Stephen Robinson’s side will be content with their early season form. However they face a mammoth task on their return to action against the current league leaders.

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou remains without centre-back Carl Starfelt due to a knee injury but the Australian has no fresh injury worries.
