Celtic vs St Johnstone LIVE SCORE as Mitov defies O’Riley THREE times and Kyogo fires wide

MATT O’RILEY could have already scored a hat-trick as Celtic return to action against St Johnstone after a surprise Cup defeat by Kilmarnock – but instead remain GOALLESS.

Attempts by Brendan Rodgers’ side to repeat their treble success from last year fell at the first hurdle, falling 1-0 to Kilmarnock in the Viaplay Cup at Rugby Park.

Saints boss Steven MacLean will be hoping for a similarly surprising result this weekend after his own side struggled earlier in the season.

McDiarmid Park’s men have won just one of their six competitive games in the 2023/24 season – after being eliminated from the Viaplay Cup in the group stage and losing both Premiership opener games 2-0
