CELTIC played St Mirren three times at Parkhead last season and thumped 11 goals into their net.

The Hoops walloped their Paisley rivals 4-0 in the league in January and followed up with a rousing 5-1 triumph to end the Saints’ Scottish Cup hopes one month later.

There was a hiccup when Stephen Robinson’s side earned a 2-2 draw in the east end of Glasgow on May 20, but the title had already been won a fortnight earlier in the 2-0 success over Hearts at Tynecastle.
