Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Scottish Premiership fixtures, including Rangers vs. St Mirren.

St Johnstone vs. Celtic (Sunday, 12.30pm)

Celtic will be hoping to get back to winning ways on Boxing Day after they were held to a draw in their most recent outing when they face St Johnstone.

The hosts are at the foot of the table right now and four points adrift of safety, placing an increasing amount of pressure on them as the season progresses and games run out.

We say: St Johnstone 0-2 Celtic

Even with all of Celtic's injury issues, they should still have enough quality for them to win this match, especially with the attacking quality the team have.

They have dominated the league throughout this season and given St Johnstone's struggles, anything other than a victory for the Hoops would be a shock.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Dundee Utd vs. Hibernian (Sunday, 3.00pm)

Just 500 fans will be permitted to attend Tannadice Stadium on Boxing Day when Dundee United host Hibernian in a Scottish Premiership clash.

The festive round of fixtures on Sunday will be the final matchday ahead of a rescheduled winter break, with this particular encounter pitting two sides on differing runs of form heading into it against one another.

We say: Dundee United 0-1 Hibernian

On paper this encounter appears as though it could be a tight clash between two sides who score and concede very few goals at both ends of the pitch.

As a result of the lift in confidence at Hibs following their win in midweek, we are predicting a narrow victory for them at Dundee United on Sunday.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Rangers vs. St Mirren (Sunday, 3.00pm)

In their final match of a tumultuous 2021, Scottish Premiership leaders Rangers welcome St Mirren to Ibrox on Boxing Day.

With the season set to be prematurely paused for the mid-season break, the relentless reigning champions will take on opponents who defied the odds to hold their Glasgow rivals to a draw on Wednesday.

We say: Rangers 3-0 St Mirren

Another clean sheet and three points double looks to be on the cards for Rangers in their final match of the 2021 calendar, as their opponents are still reeling from the disruption of a viral outbreak and can only withstand so much pressure before cracking.

Saints may have hung on bravely against Celtic, but doing so again at Ibrox - albeit a quietened version - is another matter. Their long winless run will roll on.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Motherwell vs. Livingston (Sunday, 3.00pm)

Sunday's Scottish Premiership action on Boxing Day includes Motherwell hosting Livingston at Fir Park, in what is the final round of fixtures ahead of the rescheduled winter break.

New restrictions also mean that only 500 fans will be in attendance to witness the clash between fourth and eighth in the table.

We say: Motherwell 1-0 Livingston

With neither side one for scoring many goals so far this season, it would be expected that this is another tight clash with little entertainment in front of goal on Sunday.

However, we are predicting Motherwell to edge out their visitors to continue their strong start to the campaign, and extend their impressive run of form at home as well in the process.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Aberdeen vs. Dundee (Sunday, 3.00pm)

Dundee will be attempting to get themselves out of the relegation zone on Boxing Day when they travel to face Aberdeen, who were defeated in their last outing.

The Dark Blues head into the game on a four-match losing streak, while the Dons could climb into the top half of the table with a victory.

We say: Aberdeen 2-0 Dundee

There is more for Dundee to fight for in this particular match, which should lead to them putting in a great effort as they attempt to get out of the relegation zone.

However, their recent poor form and defensive weaknesses will likely make Aberdeen the favourites, and they should have enough to secure a victory.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Hearts vs. Ross County (Sunday, 3.00pm)

Two teams at opposite ends of the table will compete on Sunday when Hearts host Ross County, with the Jambos aiming to pick up a second consecutive victory.

The Staggies are sat just above the relegation zone right now, and a defeat could see them drop into the bottom two, adding further pressure to this fixture.

We say: Hearts 1-1 Ross County

Despite the major differences between them in the league table, this will not be a routine game for Hearts due to the impressive form that Ross County are enjoying.

With the Staggies hoping to keep themselves out of the relegation zone, the squad are sure to put up a fight in this one, which could lead to the points being shared.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
