Scottish Premiership: Who will come out on top this weekend?

St Mirren host Celtic, live on Sky Sports Football; Hearts visit Motherwell

There is plenty of intrigue heading into the final round of Scottish Premiership fixtures before the international break.

After last weekend's games were postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the league returns to action with plenty of talking points.

Celtic have the chance to pull five points clear again when they head to St Mirren on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Football, and Motherwell are aiming to keep up their impressive home form against Hearts at Fir Park.

Here we take a look at what's at stake this weekend...

What is live on Sky Sports?

St Mirren vs Celtic

Celtic head to St Mirren on Sunday looking to maintain their 100 per cent start to their Scottish Premiership title defence, live on Sky Sports Football.

Ange Postecoglou's side passed up chances to beat Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday night, but the same cannot be said in the league.


They have scored 25 goals and conceded just one as they have raced to a five-point lead at the top of the table.

It has been a good week for Hearts and they will want to carry that into Sunday's game against Motherwell.

Just over a week ago Robbie Neilson's side suffered a sixth defeat in seven games when they lost 4-0 to Istanbul Basaksehir in the Europa Conference League.

On Thursday they won 2-0 away to RSF to kickstart their European campaign.

They head to Fir Park to face a Motherwell team who sit fifth in the Scottish Premiership and look rejuvenated under new manager Stevie Hammell.
