Celtic are unbeaten in 69 domestic games in Scotland, and although Hearts will make it tough at them at home, Rodgers’s side should manage to win the match with relative ease.

The Hoops are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment, while the Gers are currently second in the standings.
