Hoops set for title celebrations

Ange Postecoglou

Celtic are just 90 minutes away from becoming Scottish champions for the 52nd time in the club’s history as they prepare for Wednesday’s clash (19:30 KO) against Dundee United at Tannadice Park (Dundee 12/1, Draw 5/1, Celtic 1/4 – Match Result).

The Hoops head into the contest knowing a draw will be good enough for them to be confirmed as champions, winning the title back from Rangers and moving just three trophies behind the Gers in the all-time league records.

It would mark a first Scottish Premiership crown for Ange Postecoglou in his debut season as manager, while it would also mean the Bhoys are guaranteed a place in next term’s Champions League group stage after UEFA imposed sanctions on Russia amid their invasion of Ukraine.

Even if Celtic slip-up at Tannadice Park they would still be crowned champions if Rangers fail to beat Ross County at Ibrox (19:45 KO), as the Gers are six points behind their rivals with just two games remaining.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side arguably have bigger things to think about after they reached the Europa League final following a stunning semi-final victory over RB Leipzig, and The Light Blues will now take on Eintracht Frankfurt on May 18 (Frankfurt 4/6, Rangers 6/5 – To Lift The Trophy).

Scottish Premiership Betting Odds

Elsewhere on Wednesday evening, third-place Hearts, who can’t finish higher or lower than this position, make the trip to Fir Park to face fifth-place Motherwell (Match Result – Motherwell 2/1, Draw 5/2, Hearts 7/5).

As things stand, Dundee United in fourth and Motherwell in fifth hold the two Europa Conference League qualifying places, although Ross County are just a couple of points behind in sixth and are chasing hard.

In the other two matches, St Johnstone play host to Aberdeen and Livingston make the trip to St Mirren.
