St Johnstone vs Celtic: TV channel, live stream & team news for Scottish Premiership clash

ST JOHNSTONE will host Celtic in a Scottish Premiership clash on Boxing Day.

The match will be played in front of just 500 fans under Scottish Government curbs on stadia capacity.

It’ll also be the last match before the winter break which was brought forward by the SPFL after club pleas.

St Johnstone come into the match without a win in their last seven league outings with boss Callum Davidson desperate for an upturn in form as his side remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

Celtic too are looking to get back to winning ways after being held by Covid-hit St Mirren in Paisley on Wednesday.

Ange Postecoglou’s side currently sit second in the league six points behind leaders Rangers.
