Celtic take on 10th-placed St Mirren this Saturday, as Neil Lennon’s Scottish Premiership leaders edge closer to yet another league title.
Opponents St Mirren are currently just two points above Hamilton Academical and the relegation zone, although the Buddies have a game in hand over the side in 11th.
Here’s how you can watch the clash between first and 10th, with the home side firm favourites to take all three points.

Lennon reveals Celtic’s daily briefings on coronavirus and the upcoming game:
With the worldwide outbreak of coronavirus, and the first cases being confirmed in Scotland, Celtic players have been given daily briefings on the situation.
Neil Lennon, who was crowned Ladbrokes Premiership manager of the month yesterday, said to the Daily Record: ”We have briefings every morning. We have to protect the players as much as we can.
“We want to play the games in front of full houses. The club will guide me on how to guide the players and my staff.”
Even though these briefings have occurred, the Scottish FA is still planning to allow the rest of the season to be played. Lennon has been quick to praise both his side and today’s opponents.
“We’ve been playing superbly. Even on Wednesday the level of the performance was very high,” said Lennon.
“Jim Goodwin has improved them (St Mirren). Going 4-4-2. We’re at home. I expect them to be difficult to break down. I want a front foot performance.”
The game at Celtic Park kicks off at 3pm, along with four other Scottish top-flight matches.
Meanwhile, Ross County take on second-placed Steven Gerrard’s Rangers tomorrow at Victoria Park (12pm), although the title is almost out of the Gers’ reach.
Can I watch the match live today?
Like the English FA, the Scottish Football Association has banned live broadcast in the UK of games between the times of 2:45pm and 5:15pm on Saturdays.
This means that the game will not be streamed either, although Celtic TV subscribers from outside the UK will be able to stream the match live.

Celtic have numerous injury worries going in to today’s clash, although Kristoffer Ajer played at Livingston on Wednesday after being cast as a doubt for the game.
Hatem Abd Elhamed also reappeared on the bench in midweek, although Oliver Ntcham, Mikey Johnston and Jozo Simunovic were all absent from the tie.
St Mirren midfielder Kyle Magennis continues his recovery from a knee injury that he sustained in January, although he is expected to miss the rest of the season.
The same applies to Ryan Flynn, who suffered a cruciate ligament injury last month, although Stephen McGinn has returned to training ahead of his return.
