Andy Walker and Ian Crocker's Scottish Premiership preview

Last Updated: 20/04/18 6:26pm
What a week it has been in Scottish football.
Stephen Robinson's Motherwell made it to their second national final of the season; St Mirren claimed their place back in Scotland's top division while the fallout from Rangers' embarrassing Old Firm defeat reverberated long after Sunday's final whistle.
Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller were suspended by Rangers following an alleged dressing room bust-up with manager Graeme Murty, who has backed the removal of the duo. Miller is unlikely to play for the club again with his contract up at the end of the season. Wallace's future is more uncertain with a year left to run on his current deal.
The Ibrox side welcome Hearts, live on Sky Sports this Sunday, where former heroes of the club could come back to haunt them in Kyle Lafferty and Steven Naismith.
Celtic will cap off a fantastic week for their fans by clinching the Scottish Premiership title if they take all three points against Neil Lennon's Hibernian.
There are four other Premiership fixtures on Saturday, the first since the split took effect on the league. Despite Celtic's dominance, there is still plenty to play for with the race for second as tight as ever and four teams still realistically capable of being relegated.
Sky Sports' commentary team of Andy Walker and Ian Crocker have made their predictions and picked their players to watch over the weekend.
Hibernian v Celtic - Saturday 12.30pm
Hibernian 1-1 Celtic
Key Player- Dylan McGeouch
Consistently good this season, should be keen to shine against his former club.
Hibernian 1-2 Celtic
Key Player- Tom Rogic
If there's a big goal to be scored in a big game he's your man.
Hibernian's last top-flight victory over Celtic came back in December 2012 (1-0) - Hibs have lost four of the seven contests between the two sides since (D3), and have recorded just one victory in their last 17 Scottish Premiership matches against Celtic (D5 L11).
Celtic have lost just one of their 10 visits to Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership (W6 D3 L1), keeping seven clean sheets.
Hibernian are enjoying a nine-game unbeaten run in the Scottish Premiership (W6 D3) - only Kilmarnock (11) are on a longer run without defeat.
Celtic have kept five clean sheets in their last seven league games (W4 D3).
Despite facing Hibernian on three occasions in the Scottish Premiership, Moussa Dembele is yet to find the back of the net against them (one of only three sides he is yet to score against, also Dundee and Partick Thistle).
Dundee v St Johnstone - Saturday 3pm
Dundee 1-0 St Johnstone
Key Player- Glen Kamara
Clever midfield player who could make all the difference in this grudge match.
Dundee 2-0 St Johnstone
Key Player- Roarie Deacon
Likely to deliver a few crosses to ask some questions.
Dundee have won four of their last five Scottish Premiership matches against St. Johnstone on home soil (L1), however that defeat did come in the most recent meeting between the two sides in March (0-4).
St. Johnstone have scored more goals against Dundee (six) than any other side in the competition this campaign.
Dundee have failed to score in five of their last six league games (D2 L4).
St. Johnstone have won just one of their last seven league games away from home (D2 L4).
St. Johnstone have the lowest scoring top goal scorers in the Scottish Premiership this campaign (Michael O'Halloran, Steven MacLean and Murray Davidson, 5).
Kilmarnock v Aberdeen - Saturday 3pm
Kilmarnock 0-0 Aberdeen
Key Player- Stephen O'Donnell
One of many Kilmarnock players who have upped their game under Stevie Clark.
Kilmarnock 2-2 Aberdeen
Key Player- Kris Boyd
Over 20 goals and counting this season not bad for an old boy!
Kilmarnock have lost 15 of their last 16 top-flight matches against Aberdeen (D1) and are winless in 17 matches against the Dons (D2 L15).
Aberdeen have won each of their last seven trips to Killie in the Scottish Premiership keeping four clean sheets during this period.
Kilmarnock are enjoying a six-game winning streak in the Scottish Premiership - the longest current run in the competition.
Aberdeen have failed to score in five of their previous seven league games away from home (W2 D1 L4).
Kris Boyd has scored 13 goals in his last 16 league games, including one in his most recent appearance against Aberdeen back in January.
Partick Thistle v Hamilton Accies - Saturday 3pm
Partick Thistle 2-0 Hamilton Accies
Key Player- Blair Spittal
Perhaps one Thistle player capable of a big moment.
Partick Thistle 1-0 Hamilton Accies
Key Player- Conor Sammon
As good a chance as anyone to step forward and settle it.
Partick's 12-game unbeaten run against Hamilton came to an end the last time the two sides met as the Accies claimed all three points with a 2-1 victory back in February.
Hamilton are winless in their last six trips to Partick in the top-flight (D3 L3) losing their last two without scoring.
The Thistle have now gone nine top-flight matches without a victory (D2 L7), the longest current winless streak in the competition.
However, Hamilton have lost five consecutive matches in the Scottish Premiership - the last side to lose six on the bounce was also Hamilton back in October.
Conor Sammon has scored more goals against Hamilton (6) than any other Scottish Premiership side.
Ross County v Motherwell - Saturday 3pm
Ross County 1-1 Motherwell
Key Player- Ross Draper
County simply have to maintain their current form over a Motherwell side coming off the high of reaching the Scottish Cup final.
Ross County 1-2 Motherwell
Key Player- Curtis Main
Powerful performance at Hampden typified Motherwell's character.
Ross County have failed to score in two of their three league matches against Motherwell this campaign (W1 L2), having scored in each of their previous 15 games against the Steelmen in the top-flight (W4 D4 L7).
Motherwell have lost just one of their last four trips to Ross County in the Scottish Premiership (W2 D1), however that defeat did come in their last visit to Victoria Park back in November (2-3).
Ross County have won just two of their last 20 Scottish Premiership games (D6 L12).
Motherwell are winless in their last five league games (D3 L2), failing to score in four of those matches during this period.
Since the start of 2018, Alex Schalk has score more goals than any other player in the competition (8).
Rangers v Hearts - Sunday 12.30pm
Rangers 1-2 Hearts
Key Player- David Milinkovic
Capable of scoring in a game where all the focus will be on the Rangers players after last week's pitiful semi final defeat against Celtic.
Rangers 1-1 Hearts
Key Player- Kyle Lafferty
Aiming to make his presence felt back on familiar territory.
Rangers are unbeaten in their last four Scottish Premiership matches against Hearts (W3 D1), scoring five goals in their last two games against them.
Hearts have won just one of their last 21 trips to Ibrox in the top-flight (D5 L15), failing to score in 12 of those matches and each of the last two.
Despite beating Dundee 4-0 in their previous Scottish Premiership game, Rangers have won just one of their last four league games (D1 L2).
Hearts have won just one of their last nine away league games (D4 L4), failing to score in five of those games during this period.
Just three of Josh Windass' 12 league goals this season have come at Ibrox (nine away from home).
