Andy Walker predicts Celtic clash against Hearts

Sky Sports’ Scottish football pundits Ian Crocker and Andy Walker have both predicted Celtic will win this weekend when they face Hearts at Tynecastle.

In their column on the Sky Sports website, both men are tipping the Bhoys to defeat Hearts, but differ on the scoreline and key man for the Celts.

Ian Crocker is going for a comfortable 3-1 win for Celtic, and his key man is Moussa Dembele who has been on the bench recently but  “Might be unleashed for this one.”

Meanwhile Walker is tipping an emphatic 4-0 victory for the Hoops, his key man is Scott Sinclair, who he tempers his praise of by suggesting that “he can still improve his level of performance.”

Sinclair scored his 15th goal of the season in the 3-1 victory over Hamilton, whilst Dembele was an unused substitute in the game.

The Hoops go into the game against Hearts five points clear of nearest challengers Rangers and Aberdeen, but with a game in hand which is set to be played on the 20th of December against Partick Thistle at Celtic Park.
