Celtic team news

For Celtic heading into this match, there is one doubtful player. As per the Daily Record, Luis Palma faced a race against time to be fit for the Rangers match. The consensus was that if he was fit, he would be in the squad.

But the Honduran international was not in the matchday squad to face the Rangers at the weekend. So it remains to be seen whether he is fit for this match against St Mirren.

The good news for Celtic fans at least is that Palma had another week to rest. Hopefully, he will return to the squad this weekend. There are not believed to be any other injury concerns at the moment. Hopefully, it stays that way.

St Mirren team news

The visiting side will feel confident as they head into this match, since they do not have any players injured. Therefore, Stephen Robinson can field his strongest lineup.

Celtic vs St Mirren prediction

Celtic left all their emotions on the pitch last weekend. Undeniably, The Hoops will feel hard done by and rightly so. However, the best way to make amends is for the manager and the players to approach this game with a can-do attitude. St Mirren are having a good season but they have won just one league game of their last five, so Rodgers' side are favourites at home. We will go with Celtic 3-1 St Mirren.
