With 23 wins from 25 matches in the SPFL Celtic fans can afford a little forward planning.
Two cup competitions mean that there is only one more SPFL match this month, at home to Aberdeen on February 18, as spring approaches, lighter nights and the time when the prizes get given out.
The SPFL split gives the season an unbalanced look, Celtic should have three away matches after Round 33 which will see Ange Postecoglou’s side go to Tynecastle and Ibrox plus one other ground.
Celtic 8 games to the split:
St Mirren (a)
Ross County (a)
5 games at home.
Celtic haven’t lost at home in the league since losing to St Mirren over 2 years ago.
Celtic are averaging 3.12 goals per game.

Before that there are just three away matches to be played with St Mirren on Sunday March 5 the most ominous looking fixture even though the grey/silver kit won’t be making a reappearance.
In two visits to Paisley Postecoglou has yet to witness his side scoring, just before Christmas 2021 there was a painful goal-less draw followed last September by the only domestic defeat of the season.
The Celtic boss won’t be looking much further than Saturday’s Scottish Cup tie against St Mirren but the invasion of cup ties allows fans to look further into the distance, taking full points going into the April 8 Glasgow derby should set that one up very interestingly.
