I am sure Neil Lennon would have been happy with his players for the best part of an hour in last week's clash at Ibrox, but in a must-win game, a moment of madness saw Nir Bitton correctly sent off and as a result, they lost 1-0 and their title hopes have all but gone. On the plus side, the recent introduction of Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull has been encouraging for Celtic supporters and both have improved the energy levels and, more importantly, the goal threat for the team. How will they look after the transfer window? Like every other club, they will want to come out of the window stronger than before. Much will depend on offers for players like Olivier Ntcham, the midfielder's value decreasing given his lack of game time.

After surging into a two-goal lead at Easter Road in November, Hibs should have taken all three points, but Celtic clawed their way back for a point. Jack Ross has recalled goalkeeper Kevin Dabrowski from his loan spell at Dumbarton now that Dillon Barnes has returned to QPR. Losing their last three league games is poor form for the Edinburgh side, but they always have an attacking outlook, so there should be some goals in this one.

Andy Walker's prediction: 3-0
