Celtic can effectively wrap up the Scottish Premiership title when they host Hearts on Saturday lunchtime.

A victory for Ange Postecoglou’s side would move them nine points clear with two games left to play and while Rangers could close the gap back to six points with a win over Dundee United on Sunday, Celtic’s +19 goal difference advantage would make it virtually impossible for them to be caught.

It would complete a dream first season in charge for the former Australia head coach having taken over a Celtic side who finished 25 points behind Rangers last season, and who were seven points behind this term just a few months ago.

While the pressure is off their Celtic Park opponents – Hearts have already clinched third place – the visitors will be keen to finish their league campaign on a high with the Scottish Cup final against Rangers on the horizon.
