Glasgow Celtic will be looking to record yet another victory in the Scottish Premiership when they play against Hearts on Sunday.

The reigning champions of Scotland head into the game in good form after having scored 12 goals from their opening two games in the league thus far.

On paper, Neil Lennon’s Celtic side will be expected to prevail during the game but they will be up against opposition who are confident after having beaten Motherwell in the Betfred Cup.

Hearts also head into the game in decent form after having lost just one out of their last five games in all competitions, with the other results being two draws and two wins.

Celtic by contrast have won three out of their last five games in all competitions with the other results being a loss against CFR Cluj in the Champions League, as well as a draw against the same opposition.

The Hoops will have an opportunity to recall goalkeeper Fraser Forster, according to BBC Sport, who recently rejoined the Parkhead side on loan from Southampton.

Lennon’s Celtic side will have to make do without the services of Scott Bain who remains out of action due to an injured thumb. Hatem Abd Elhamed is also doubtful for the game. Forster could be set to be handed an immediate start in lieu of the absence of Bain.

The Hoops made do without the services of Tom Rogic during their last game against AIK and it remains to be seen whether he will play. Kristoffer Ajer is however expected to regain his place in the team.
