Callum Davidson is one game away from a Double as St Johnstone boss with a Scottish Cup Final against Hibs standing between his side and the title of most successful Saints side. As a result, the Perth outfit have decided to take extra precautions ahead of their trip to Paradise on Wednesday night.
Saints beat St Mirren 2-1 on Sunday to set up the final against Jack Ross’ Hibs but after missing four players due to COVID-19 positive tests and associated self isolation orders. Therefore ahead of the game against Celtic, Davidson has said that his players must stay safe and travel on their own to games. Speaking after the win. as reported by the Glasgow Times, Davidson said that this provision means that just one player will miss the final if disaster strikes.
“We know it’s about keeping everybody safe and I think that between now and the end of the season all the boys will go to games in cars so if anything does come back positive it will just be one player we miss.”
Meanwhile, Celtic will have a chance to scout St Johnstone’s Ali McCann in the game on Wednesday night. Celtic have been linked with the energetic midfielder in recent weeks as they plan a rebuild in the summer. A new manager is likely to be in place ahead of the new season but a new central midfielder to replace Scott Brown.
