Celtic FC vs St. Mirren predictions: Celtic FC Line-up

Celtic travel to Paisley 2021 Stadium to play St. Mirren on Wednesday evening as interim manager Neil Lennon aims to keep the winning form going.

The Hoops won the Old Firm derby bragging rights at the weekend, stretching their lead at the top of the table to 13 points. They are now best priced at 1/5 to retain the Premiership title, though punters can see these odds supercharged should they place the bet through the betting app Kwiff.

As far as St. Mirren are concerned, they are fighting tooth and nail to stay in the top flight and come into this game on the back of a 2-1 victory over Dundee.

Team News

Dedryck Boyata and Kieran Tierney hobbled off against Rangers and Lennon will not risk them as his team have a 13-point cushion.

Celtic welcomed Ntcham and Rogic back from injuries at the weekend but he’ll be without Ryan Christie for another couple of weeks.

Probable Celtic XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Neil Lennon

Scott Bain (GK)

Bain is now the first-choice in the team and is expected to be in goal on Wednesday.

Mikael Lustig (RB)

He blew hot and cold against Rangers, yet should be preferred ahead of Toljan against St. Mirren.

ajer

Jozo Simunovic (CB)

With Boyata limping off against Rangers and Benkovic doubtful, Simunovic should start in central defence on Wednesday.

Kristoffer Ajer (CB)

Ajer has performed really well since the last month or so and is expected to partner Simunovic against St. Mirren.

Jonny Hayes (LB)

Even though Tierney’s injury isn’t a serious one, Lennon should not take a gamble with the Scotsman and hand Hayes a start at left-back.

brown

Scott Brown (CM)

Brown is a certain starter for the Hoops as the veteran Scotsman will look to impose himself on the opposition from minute one.

Olivier Ntcham (CM)

Ntcham will be preferred again alongside Brown in central midfield. The Frenchman should look to put in a dominant performance at St. Mirren.

Timothy Weah (RW)

Weah is a fantastic dribbler and his pace, power and direct approach could make him a huge threat for St. Mirren defenders on Wednesday.

Callum McGregor (CAM)

Arguably Celtic’s best player this season, McGregor will look to link the midfield and the attack from the no.9 role.

Oliver Burke (LW)

Burke has played in different roles in the attacking third of the pitch but he’s most dangerous when deployed on the left wing.

Odsonne Edouard (ST)

Scored a really good goal in the 2-1 victory over Rangers at the weekend and will be eager to get on the score-sheet at St. Mirren as well.
