Team news

Peter Haring will miss out for Hearts due to still being in concussion protocol. Andy Halliday will be in the squad after fears he’d damaged his Achilles in the 2-0 loss to Aberdeen last time out. Michael Smith has a chance of being fit, likewise, wingers Josh Ginnelly and Gary Mackay-Steven. Craig Halkett, Nathaniel Atkinson, and Kye Rowles remain out. Liam Boyce and Beni Baningime are long-term absentees.

Celtic’s ridiculous wealth of attacking talent could be bolstered by the return of Jota and David Turnbull from injury.

Hearts have won just five of 17 games this season, a run that stretches to five in 22 going back to the 2021/22 campaign. They’ve suffered four defeats in a winless run of five, conceding 16 goals in the process while scoring only three.

Though they’ve continued to struggle in European football, Celtic have returned to their dominant ways on the domestic scene, winning their last four with 14 goals scored, including six against Hibs last weekend.


Hearts have won just one of the last 15 meetings between the sides, the 2-1 win at Tynecastle which kicked off last season. The Celtic have won the rest. There hasn’t been a draw in the league between the sides since December 2015.

Manager thoughts

Robbie Neilson: “If you look at the last few games we haven’t picked up the results but we are creating chances. At Kilmarnock, we could have been two or three up, against Aberdeen it was the same before they scored. We aren’t taking them but we are creating them. We know we aren’t defending as well as we should, but there’s a reason for that.”

Bookies’ odds
