Celtic returns to Paradise on Wednesday as they are set to host Hearts in another Scottish Premiership League matchup.
Celtic are currently riding a seven-match win streak to begin the New Year. In the previous six matches, the Hoops have scored three or more goals, and will look to continue the trend against Hearts on Wednesday.
Hearts currently sits at the very bottom of the Scottish Premiership League table, but as Rangers found out, Hearts is capable of competing with the upper-tier of Scottish football clubs. Hoops boss Neil Lennon acknowledged the Hearts winter improvements, and the threat they may pose in his weekly press conference.
Key players were given rest against Clyde on Sunday during the fifth-round of the Scottish Cup. Those players should take the field on Wednesday, with others, such as Mohamed Elyounoussi, who has recently returned from injury, getting another run out.
