Neil Lennon can motivate Hibs against Celtic

Former manager will be eager to spoil celebrations

Hibs boss Neil Lennon
1 of 1

Scottish Premiership
BT Sport 1, 12.30pm Saturday

Hibernian have battled Celtic all the way in their previous meetings this season and their clash at Easter Road should be no different.

Celtic can win their seventh Ladbrokes Premiership title, although there are plenty of conspiracy theorists who believe they would rather wait and inflict yet more pain on former rivals Rangers by winning it against them next week instead.

The one certainty is former Hoops boss Neil Lennon won't want his former team celebrating in Leith and he's targeted four out of five wins after the split to overtake crisis clubs Rangers and Aberdeen and finish second.

It remains a big ask to defeat the champions-in-waiting, but both teams should at least find the target.

Recommendation
Both teams to score
