Celtic hit the road again tomorrow, heading for St Johnstone after a burst of three home wins in eight days.

It’s generally accepted that if Celtic are to lose their unbeaten record it will be away from home with McDiarmid Park as likely a venue as any.

Earlier in the season Celtic won 4-2 against St Johnstone in a game of contrasts, racing into a 3-0 lead then being pulled back to 3-2 late in the match.

St Johnstone were at Celtic Park ten days ago and it made things difficult, strangely an away fixture looks more straightforward with an onus on the home side to push forward.

Every match until the title is won is going to have a cup tie atmosphere but as they’ve shown all season Brendan Rodgers’ side can adapt to the circumstances and come away with full points.

St Johnstone have their own targets to aim for and are virtually neck and neck with Hearts in third place with Tommy Wright being acknowledged as one of the most astute managers in the SPFL.

Celtic are strong favourites going into the match and should have more than enough on the pitch and on the bench to take the unbeaten domestic run onto 29 matches.
