St Mirren vs CelticScottish Premiership, KO: 19:45 Apr 3, 2019, Simple Digital Arena
IT'S back to normal after the madness of Sunday's Old Firm derby which so far has claimed reds for three Rangers players.
Alfredo Morelos was sent off and misses the next four games while Andy Halliday is banned for one after clashing with Scott Brown after the final whistle.
On-loan Liverpool winger Ryan Kent has been cited by the compliance officer and likely to accept a two-game ban but if he does it won't come into play until Thursday.
It will surely be much calmer on Wednesday with Celtic travelling to St Mirren and Rangers at home to Hearts.
Celtic are likely to make changes – Dedryck Boyata being an enforced one – in Paisley while Rangers will be forced into them for the visit of Hearts.
There's no value in the Celtic game until teams are revealed as they are no bigger than 1-5 and likely to be a little flat after the weekend fireworks.
The Buddies moved off the bottom after their weekend defeat of Dundee but are 18-1 for a reason. It was 0-0 earlier in the season though in Oran Kearney's first game in charge and in seven visits to Paisley the champions have won by more than only once so it's not their favourite venue.
Saints looked doomed a few weeks ago but have picked up with victories against Dundee and Hamilton as well as draws at Hearts and Aberdeen. They've got a chance of avoiding the drop now but unlikely to stop Celtic's charge to the title.
I'll be on Celtic -1 at 4-7 with McBookie if I like the line-up (and I do) although Odsonne Edouard is on the bench so I've changed first scorer to James Forrest at 13-4 with 888sport. Edouard was superb against Rangers and could yet turn into the striker Brendan Rodgers expected when he signed him.
Rangers will be looking for a lift after leaving Parkhead with nothing despite playing well after being reduced to 10 men. Kent's cracking goals looked to have earned them a point before James Tavernier's mistake let Celtic in for a late winner.
Hearts will be without weekend goal hero Uche Ikpeazu and that's a huge blow. And anyway Craig Levein's side may have one eye on the weekend derby against Hibs and the following week's Scottish Cup semi-final against Inverness.
Steven Gerrard's should bounce back with a win even though a best 8-15 with McBookie is a little skinny. They have won six of seven at home to the Jambos and will be looking to give their support something to cheer as they aim to finish second behind Celtic.
This Scottish Premiership match between St Mirren and Celtic will be played on Apr 3, 2019 and kick off at 19:45
