Boxing Day fixtures

Scottish football at ChristmasThrough the fog of turkey, wine and discarded wrapping paper the Scottish Football Blog brings you our SPL predictions for the Boxing Day fixture card.

Celtic v Hamilton

The Celtic revival took an almighty bump at Tynecastle last Sunday. Once again they were the authors of their own downfall. If they can take their chances they should get back on track with a home win today.

Dundee United v Kilmarnock

We can't beat about the bush. Losing Craig Levein is a massive blow for United. How much it will impact on their season remains to be seen. Kilmarnock have their own troubles down at the wrong end of the table. Draw.

Falkirk v Hearts

Which Hearts team will turn up? The one that draws with teams like Falkirk.

Motherwell v St Johnstone

Motherwell need to do some ship steadying following a bad run and the tanking of the season last week. I fancy St Johnstone to nick this one though. Away win.

St Mirren v Aberdeen

Neither team are in a rich vein of form and that mean's we won't see a classic here. Low scoring draw.

Hibs v Rangers (Sunday)

The game of the weekend. Time for Hibs to show if they're really up for the challenge. Both sides are on form so it would be nice to think this game can be a cracker. Could be close but I've got a feeling Hibs might just do it.
