Celtic v Hearts kick off time, TV info, team news and more

Celtic host Hearts this weekend in a massive Scottish Premiership clash.

The Glasgow side are closing in on another title and could clinch the championship with a victory today. Celtic have won five of their last six games, with that only blemish being a 1-1 draw with Rangers last time out.

If Celtic win on Saturday and Rangers fail to beat Dundee on Sunday, Celtic will be crowned Scottish champions for the 52nd time.

And with news that UEFA are set to ban Russian clubs from European competition next season, a league win could guarantee Celtic a place in the Champions League group stage.

Hearts have already secured European football for next season and sit third in the table heading into tomorrow’s game. And with a Scottish Cup final ahead, the Jambos will be desperate to build momentum.

Josip Juranovic is still injured for Celtic, while the game could come too soon for Hearts striker Ellis Simms, who is currently struggling with a groin injury.
