Ange Postecoglou’s side are on a high after claiming the first silverware of the campaign following their Viaplay Cup final win over Rangers last Sunday, but they will be wary of the trip to The SMiSA Stadium after the events of September 18 last year.
Celtic lost that match 2-0 with goals from Mark O’Hara and Jonah Ayunga either side of half-time sealing a stunning win for the Buddies, who are having an excellent season by their standards, sitting fifth in the Premiership standings, just five points behind third-placed Hearts.
Celtic have not tasted defeat in any Scottish competition since, with a 2-2 draw against Rangers at Ibrox on January 2 the only match they have failed to win in their last 24 domestic fixtures – a run which has established a nine-point lead at the top of the table.
While St Mirren will hope lightning strikes twice, the indomitable form of the defending champions would make this seem a tall order, notwithstanding the potential for any cup final hangover in the Celtic ranks.
