Not the same SPL

Scottish football fans are in for a solid weekend of action as 3 key matches are expected to unfold.

Celtic v. Aberdeen

The first match-up pits 2nd place Celtic against recent underachievers, Aberdeen. Although Aberdeen are currently 6 points behind Celtic, they are notorious for upsetting the Old Firm on a consistent basis. After last year’s positive UEFA Cup run, they’ve formed a tight stubborn bunch under the leadership of prolific Scottish scorer, Lee Miller. But Celtic are fresh from a destructive performance against Kilmarnock and are looking to establish hard ground for the first time after recent reshuffling this season.

Dundee United v. Heart of Midlothian

Hearts have been the surprise team this season under electric manager, Csaba László. While momentum may be high, Hearts have notable history of dropping points against struggling opponents. Former Hearts manager, Craig Levein has a tendency of producing defensive powerhouses. His recent record against Hearts could mean the toughest test for the upstart Jambos this season. Hearts are currently 4 points behind League leaders, Rangers.

Hibernian v. Rangers

Rangers visit Easter Road, leading the League – 3 points ahead of 2nd-place, Celtic. Hibs have been Scotland’s most successful youth producers in the last decade & they should make life impossible for a Rangers squad that’s desperate to find its form. This is expected to be a classic battle of skill vs. muscle with Easter Road promising to be as intimidating as ever. Rangers and Scotland skipper, Barry Fergusson is still out with an injury, a possible reason for the team’s recent lackluster form.
