Celtic extended their unwanted winless record against rivals Rangers to six matches in all competitions when they were comprehensively beaten 4-1 away at Ibrox last weekend.
A lively seven-minute spell in the first half saw three goals scored and a red card for Hoops midfielder Callum McGregor, who was dismissed for a late tackle in the build-up to Kemar Roofe‘s opener. Odsonne Edouard equalised just four minutes later, before Alfredo Morelos fired a shot past Scott Bain to put the champions in control heading into half time.
Steven Gerrard‘s men took advantage of the extra man after the break with another goal from Roofe and a late fourth from substitute Jermain Defoe, sealing all three points for the hosts, who remain unbeaten in this season’s top flight.
That result means the Hoops are a colossal 23 points behind their rivals at the summit, and they have now gone an entire Scottish Premiership campaign without an Old Firm derby victory for the first time since the 1999-2000 season.
Interim boss John Kennedy has assured Celtic fans that the club are planning to return to the top of Scottish football in the “shortest possible timeframe” and that they are also working hard to appoint a new manager, giving whoever takes the reins plenty of time to prepare for next season and launch a fightback.
The Hoops head into Wednesday’s fixture with St Johnstone unbeaten in 15 top-flight meetings against them, winning 12 of those games and scoring 44 goals in the process.
Celtic are now guaranteed to end this term with less than 80 points for only the second time in the last 20 years and, if they fail to win on Wednesday night, they will also finish the campaign with their lowest points total since the 1999-2000 season.
