Celtic returned from their trip to Dubai with more than just a winter suntan – Christopher Jullien has now tested positive for Covid and 13 players, Neil Lennon, and John Kennedy are having to self isolate as a result.
A make-shift Celtic team will now take on Hibs as they desperately look to make a dent in Rangers’ 22 point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
Read on to see our top Odds Picks for the match including a 9/2 first goalscorer fancy.

Our Top Odds Pick – Over 3.5 Hibs corners – 5/6 at bet365
Hibs have lost three on the bounce – scoring just one goal in their last four matches – but they’re going to be popular at the bookies to see off Celtic tonight.
Without knowing the team news, however, we’re happy to focus elsewhere for our top Odds Pick and corners have caught our eye.
The corner count for Hibs’ last eight away matches reads: 8, 3, 6, 6, 4, 5, 6, 5 – with the 8 coming against runaway league leaders Rangers at Ibrox.
They’ve also landed over 3.5 corners in almost 80% of their matches this season and against what’s likely to be a weakened Celtic side, we can see them nabbing at least four corners tonight.
Our Long Shot – Kevin Nisbet to score first – 9/2 at bet365
Nisbet has been a revelation for Hibs this season, bagging 10 league goals so far following his move from Dunfermline.
He scored when these two battled out a 2-2 draw at Easter Road back in November and with question marks over Celtic’s line-up, we think he offers some tasty value to grab the opening goal.
