Celtic are looking to take one step closer to the title. They are only seven points short of reaching their goal, a total which could drop to as low as four depending on Aberdeen’s result on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers’ side remain unbeaten in domestic football and have dropped only two points the entire league season.
