Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Celtic will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over Ross County when they take on Hamilton at Hope CBD Stadium on Matchday 20. The Hoops did well to get their revenge on the Staggies for the shocking loss in the Scottish League Cup, but Neil Lennon’s men need to keep on raising their form if they are to melt Rangers’ advantage in the Premier League table. Anyhow, Celtic have been showing signs of improvement of late, and they are surely capable of beating Hamilton behind closed doors.
James Forrest remains in the recovery room, but Neil Lennon can count on key players for Saturday’s clash. The Accies failed to impress in a midweek loss to Livingston, and we do not believe that they are capable of claiming a major scalp in the Hope CBD Stadium clash. It has to be noted that Celtic emerged triumphant in each of their previous meetings with Hamilton in the Scottish top flight.

Highlighted Team (Celtic):
The Celtic Football Club boasts a proud over 100-year long history which has made The Bhoys a global brand thanks to their unprecedented social awareness that dates to the very beginnings of this Scottish club. Celtic was founded in 1887 with the purpose of alleviating poverty in the immigrant Irish population in the East End of Glasgow by raising money to help their fellow citizens.
The charity legacy continues to this day with Celtic still preserving their charitable traditions through the Celtic FC Foundation. The Celts play their home matches at Celtic Park in front of 60,000 people. One of the two most successful football clubs in Scotland with 47 Scottish League Championship titles to their name, Celtic have a long-standing fierce rivalry with Rangers, with the clubs known as the Old Firm.
European Cup winners from season 1966-67 and runners-up two years later, Celtic have been regular in European competitions since their first appearance in 1962-63. Their other most standout results have been runners-up in the EUFA Cup in 2003 and Intercontinental Cup in 1967.
