Scottish Premiership - Football: Weekend preview

With the international break coming to a conclusion, it's a welcome return to action for the Scottish Premiership sides this weekend.

All 12 teams will be in action on Saturday, as the battles at the top and bottom end of the table resume.

OddsHearts 4/1, Draw 3/1, Rangers 7/10

If only for a few hours, Rangers have the chance to leapfrog Celtic to sit top of the Premiership table if they can bag three points at Hearts on Saturday.

Rangers make the trip across the M8 knowing they have good form against the Edinburgh outfit, having faced the Jambos on five occasions last season.

It was the Light Blues that drew one and managed to win all of the four other meetings in all competitions, including the Scottish Cup final at Hampden with Ryan Jack and Scott Wright bagging the goals.

Hearts have enjoyed a positive start to the season and sit in third place in the standings going into the weekend.

While it looks like Hearts might well be the best of the rest behind the Old Firm sides, it's going to be a challenge to see if they can overcome Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side in the capital.

Antonio Colak has scored six league goals in seven league appearances for Rangers and is 5/4 to score anytime at Tynecastle.

OddsAberdeen 4/6, Draw 13/5, Kilmarnock 19/4

With just one win in seven league outings this term, things don't get any easier for Kilmarnock as they head to Aberdeen on Saturday.

Goals have been the real issue for Killie boss Derek McInnes, with the Ayrshire outfit managing just three so far.

Kilmarnock's form against Aberdeen does not make happy reading either for the visitors this weekend, as they haven't beaten the Dons in any of their last 11 meetings in all competitions.

Aberdeen have hardly made a blistering start to their Premiership campaign either with just 10 points from their first seven games.

However, the Reds have found the back of the net 14 times this term, with only Celtic and Rangers scoring more.

Expect another tough afternoon for McInnes against his former employers at Pittodrie.

Hoops seeking a response

WhatCeltic v Motherwell

OddsCeltic 1/9, Draw 9/1, Motherwell 16/1

After a shock 2-0 defeat at the hands of St Mirren last time out, Ange Postecoglou will be looking to make sure his Celtic side's defeat in Paisley was just a blip on an otherwise positive start to the season.

The Hoops are back in the home comforts of Celtic Park this weekend with Motherwell making the short trip across Lanarkshire.

Motherwell had a torrid time against the Hoops last season, as they suffered defeats in all their four meetings without scoring a single goal against the Old Firm outfit.

Celtic on the other hand will have thoroughly enjoyed their encounters against the Steelmen, as they scored 13 goals in those four encounters.

Postecoglou's side should have little trouble getting back to winning ways and are 15/8 to win with a -3-goal handicap.

OddsSt Mirren 13/10, Draw 11/5, Livingston 23/10

St Mirren sent shockwaves north of the border with their 2-0 win over Celtic last time out and will be hoping the international break has not affected their momentum as they welcome Livingston to Paisley.

Saints sit in fourth place in the table after what has been an impressive start to the season with four wins from their first seven games.

Manager Stephen Robinson has been getting high praise for his efforts at St Mirren Park and his side will be looking to add another three points to their tally on Saturday.

It won't be easy though against Livingston, with this fixture producing tightly-contested encounters of late.

In the last six meetings between these sides there have been five draws and another stalemate on Saturday is available at 11/5.
