Under Ange Postecoglou, Celtic have been in fantastic shape in 2022–23. They are currently first in the Premiership standings, nine points ahead of rival Rangers.

The only game in which the Hoops have lost is a 2-0 loss away to St. Mirren in September. The Hoops have won 16 of their first 17 league games.

Last time, despite a Nicky Devlin response, Celtic defeated Livingston 2-1 at home thanks to an own goal from Ayo Obileye and a strike from Kyogo Furuhashi.

Since his appointment as manager in June 2021, Postecoglou has enjoyed playing at Celtic Park, as shown by the fact that he has yet to suffer a home loss in the Scottish Premiership. This has been rather enjoyable for Hoops fans who have been following the Premiership live scores when they have been unable to watch the game, as they feel confident the right result will always be obtained.

Moving ahead to Saturday, Celtic will look to continue on the right track, with a win guaranteed to keep them a minimum of nine points clear at the top of the table.

With Callum Davidson in charge, St. Johnstone has also had a successful season and enters the weekend in fifth place in the Scottish Premiership.

The Saints have gone undefeated in their last six games, and their impressive performances have given them a chance to contend for a spot in Europe.

With 13 points from nine games, St. Johnstone and Motherwell have amassed the joint-highest number of points this season outside of Celtic and Rangers.

In their most recent match, St Johnstone overcame a goal deficit to defeat Ross County 2-1 at the Global Energy Stadium thanks to a pair of goals from Ali Crawford.

Should St Johnstone secure three points, they could move as high as third in the table if other results fall their way in the division.
