Oran Kearney's big day could be ruined by Celtic

St Mirren could get thrashed

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers applauds the fans
1 of 1

Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership
BT Sport 1, 7.45pm Friday

Celtic will be the visitors for new St Mirren boss Oran Kearney's first game in charge in Paisley and it's hard to see anything other than a difficult start for the former Coleraine manager.

Kearney replaced the hapless Alan Stubbs and immediately proclaimed his ambition is to win the title with Saints.

However, he may revise that when he sees the state of the squad he has inherited from Stubbs.

A collection of journeyman plodders from the English lower leagues have looked out of their depth and they concede chances at an alarming rate.

A Celtic side boosted by their bloodless Old Firm win should be able to take advantage.

Recommendation
Celtic to score more than two goals
