Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Celtic will be looking to build on a 3-0 win over Hibernian when they take on St Johnstone at their McDiarmid Park on Matchday 10. The Hoops are eyeing their seventh consecutive win in the Premiership, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against the Saints. Albian Ajeti suffered a serious injury in the win over Hibs, meaning that Odsonne Edouard is likely to be recalled to the starting XI.
The Saints, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their last three league fixtures, and seeing that they struggle in front of goal, anything but a routine away win will be a major surprise. Defender Callum Booth is likely to miss the game with injury for the hosts. You should bear in mind that Celtic are after their ninth consecutive win over St Johnstone in all competitions.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
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.
