Sky Sports pundit James McFadden has previewed Celtic’s trip to Easter Road. The Scottish Champions remain top after Rangers passed up the opportunity to go ahead after narrowly beating Aberdeen last night. Now, the former Premier League midfielder believes that Celtic will look to respond with a win on the road.
Speaking to Sky Sports, McFadden reckons that the game will be open and this will suit Celtic as it will allow spaces to open up. However, Hibernian may alter their approach and look to frustrate Brendan Rodgers’ side as they did back in October.
🥬 "Hibs put in a good performance earlier in the season against them, it could happen again."
🍀 "It will be an open game – that will suit Celtic."

Hopefully Celtic will find the intensity that they were lacking on their last visit to Leith and put Hibs to the sword early on, just as they should have done to Aberdeen at the weekend.
