Sky Sports pundits predict Celtic clash against Hibernian
Sky Sports Scotland football pundits Ian Crocker and Andy Walker have given their predictions ahead of the upcoming Scottish Premiership clash between Hibernian and Celtic at Easter Road this weekend.
In their column on Sky Sports the two disagree about the winner of the game.
Crocker is going for a 2-2 draw, and his key player for the game is former Celt Anthony Stokes, he believes that it is “his kind of game”.
Walker – who played for both teams – disagrees, going for an emphatic 3-1 win to Celtic. His key man for the game is Australian midfielder Tom Rogic, who he claims is “just one of a number of goal-scoring threats from a talented Celtic midfield.”
Celtic and Hibs played out an exciting 2-2 draw in Glasgow back in September, with two goals each for Callum McGregor and John McGinn.
The Hoops go into the game 67 domestic matches unbeaten, a record preserved most recently in a 5-1 victory over Motherwell.

Their last performance was far less impressive though, as their final Champions League group game ended in a 1-0 loss to Anderlecht.
It will be interesting to see if the likes of Scott Sinclair and Stuart Armstrong, who were both taken off at half-time against the Belgian champions after poor performances, start the match at Easter Road or if manager Brendan Rodgers will attempt to freshen his side up.
