Celtic will be hoping to get their Scottish Premier League title challenge back on track on Sunday when they visit St Mirren.
The Glasgow giants suffered a shock defeat to St Johnstone last weekend, and will be reeling after being dumped out of the Europa League by FC Sion in midweek.
At times, St Mirren have been something of an irritating itch for Celtic – a side that they are expected to beat comfortably every time, but somehow lose to on occasion. Back in March 2010, they really upset the Hoops by beating them 4-0.

But overall, Celtic’s record against St Mirren is formidable. In league and cup they have beaten them 181 times, losing on just 39 occasions.
Last season, Celtic re-asserted their historical dominance over the Fuddies, as they ran out victorious in all three meetings. That even included a 4-0 win at Celtic Park last August.
The game will also see a meeting of the two Lennons. Celtic manager Neil will be in the opposite dugout to his counterpart Danny who will also be taking charge of his club for the second full season.
It has been a solid start to the campaign for St Mirren, who themselves have only lost once this season. So far they have already beaten Aberdeen and Hibernian, as well as dumping Morton out of the Scottish League Cup on Tuesday.
Having finished 11th last season, they will be hoping to push on this time around, and after a bright start may even have an eye on Europa League qualification.
However, this is a game that Celtic will certainly fancy their chances of winning, and one that if there was to be any other result, it would be considered an upset. Sunday’s game kicks off at 12.45pm.
