Celtic have a great opportunity tonight in Paisly to make the league table look a bit more respectable with the Hoops lagging two games played behind first and second-placed teams.
A win tonight against St. Mirren and on Saturday at home to Livi will see Celtic joint top and put the pressure on Hibs and Rangers who will play at Easter Road on Sunday. The Champions will be looking to pick up where they left off on the weekend after they mauled Ross County.
The Hoops had five different scorers so confidence should be high as Neil Lennon will be desperate to get a winning streak going after a real stop/start season so far. Winning streaks usually come off the back of consistent team selections and tonight Neil Lennon has stuck with two strikers but had a tinker with the team.
🚨 Team news is in…

The big one is probably swapping Ajeti with Klimala, no complaints here, a lot of fans want to see Polish Paddy in action but Ajeti was on fire with three goals in as many games. Big Jullien is also a surprise as he drops to the bench for Elhamed.
Frimpong and Ntcham also find themselves replaced with Christie and Taylor coming back into the mix. With games coming thick and fast over the next few weeks Lennon must feel some rotation is needed already.
