The Hoops have now won just twice in seven appearances across all competitions (W2-D3-L2), as even one of those victories was garnered against League One outfit Falkirk.
Admittedly, both defeats were inflicted by Rangers, and excluding results with their main rivals, Celtic are a more respectable W7-D3-L1 in league action since February.
St. Johnstone shouldn’t prove to be pushovers however as they’re in a decent vein of form, with their cup win over St. Mirren on Sunday leaving them W8-D3-L1 over 90 minutes in all competitions now.
Two of those victories were picked up over second and third-tier outfits Dundee and Clyde respectively in the Scottish Cup, but they’ve still demonstrated plenty of mettle in recent displays.
St. Johnstone +1.25 Asian Handicap
In addition to securing their place in the cup final, St. Johnstone’s last four fixtures have seen them earn a pair of stalemates with Rangers, first in the league and then in cup action as they downed the Gers on penalties to reach the semis.
They’ve since beaten Hibernian in the league too, and should prove competitive given that six of their seven defeats since December have come by one-goal margins.
Under 2.5 Goals
Noticeably, St. Johnstone’s matches have been low-scoring affairs and 10 of their past 11 in all competitions have featured fewer than three goals, as seven saw just one strike or less over 90 minutes.
Moreover, excluding Celtic’s clash with Falkirk in the cup, under 2.5 goals has landed in seven of their past nine outings, as at least one side failed to score in six of these.
