Celtic pick up their title charge tomorrow when St Mirren come to Celtic Park.

The Hoops must make sure their rivals know they won’t be handing their title back easily by thumping a dismal St Mirren side.

The Buddies performed a great escape in the Scottish Cup to avoid an embarrassing defeat to Alloa Athletic.

2-0 down and a man short at home, the Paisley side rallied to win 3-2 and spare their blushes.

But tomorrow, Celtic should punish them and send out a clear title warning to the rest of the league.

Celtic have been devastating at home in the league this season. In their last five matches at home in the Premiership, they’ve scored a total of 20 goals and conceded just three.

Hearts and Kilmarnock, two teams who had previous beaten Celtic this season, found themselves on the end of a serious drubbing at Parkhead.

St. Mirren, who scraped a point against a lacklustre Celtic in September, must join them on that list tomorrow.

No one needs to remind Celtic their last league game resulted in defeat at the home of their bitter rivals Rangers.

Celtic have a change to banish that defeat tomorrow and get their title charge back on track with a dominant win.

With new signing Timothy Weah chomping at the bit of make his first Celtic start, the Bhoys should spring out the traps at Parkhead.

Despite the 3-0 win over Airdrie on Saturday, the season really starts back up again tomorrow. The Hoops must put on a show for their fans attending the midweek fixture.

St Mirren sit second bottom of the league, and have an astonishingly bad goal difference of  -24.

Celtic’s in comparison stands at +32, that’s a staggering 56 goal difference between the teams.

Celtic can’t slip up

St Mirren won’t be expecting anything from the game, it’s not fixtures at Parkhead that will determine their Premiership fate.

However, fixtures at home to St Mirren are exactly the type of game that will determine Celtic’s championship status come the end of the season.

With the defeat at Ibrox still fresh in the memory, the fans will be expecting a dominant display against the lowly Buddies. Their title charge demands it.

A slip up would do nothing but hand even more encouragement across the city, even if Celtic have a game in hand.
