Scottish Premiership fixtures: Who will come out on top this weekend? | Football News

The games are coming thick and fast in the Scottish Premiership with plenty of intrigue ahead this weekend and one game live on Sky Sports.

Celtic travel to St Johnstone as they look to retain their nine-point lead at the top of the table.

Michael Beale’s Rangers are at home to Ross County seeking to build on their impressive performance against Hearts on Wednesday night.

There is a huge game at Pittdorie as manager-less Aberdeen, without a win in their last five games, host a Motherwell side who could find themselves dropping to the foot of the Scottish Premiership table.

Here we take a look at what is at stake…

What is live on Sky Sports?


Sunday 5th February 11:00am


Kick off 12:00pm

Ange Postecoglou’s table-topping Celtic travel to McDiarmid Park on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, looking to make it 18 games unbeaten in the league.

Motherwell are also on a dismal run and are without a win in their last 10 league games.

Steven Hammell’s side could find themselves bottom on the table this weekend if they fail to turn things around.

How long will St Mirren’s home run continue?

St Mirren have the chance to close in on the top three in the Scottish Premiership this weekend if their impressive home record continues.

Stephen Robinson’s side have only lost one league match in Paisley this season and beat Hibs 1-0 in their last game at the SMiSA back in August.

They will, however, be aware of the threat of Hibs who appear to be rediscovering some league form and are unbeaten in their last four games.

If they can end the Buddies’ home run they will move above them in the table.

Will Dundee United move off bottom spot?

Hearts will be looking to bounce back from a midweek defeat to Rangers when they host Dundee United at Tynecastle Park on Saturday.

That loss ended a 10-game unbeaten streak with six wins and four draws across all competitions.

Dundee United are bottom of the Scottish Premiership table with just five wins so far this season, but victory this weekend could lift them out of the relegation zone.

Can Kilmarnock win on the road?
