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

This time around, they have had to be content with two after their 2-1 win over the Paisley club in November.

Brendan Rodgers’ side had to respond from going a goal behind to come back and claim three points.

Daizen Maeda scored the champions’ first goal of 2024 when he netted in the early minutes of the 3-0 triumph in Paisley on January 2 as the visitors eased to victory.

The Japanese international was also on target when the holders won 2-0 in the Scottish Cup at the same venue the following month.

How much can you remember about past connections with the Paisley side? Have a go in CQN‘s fun five-minute quiz.

Answers will be provided when the team is announced before kick-off.

Good luck!
