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

On the brink of securing their third straight league title, leaders Celtic make the trip to Rugby Park to face Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday night.

Killie's victory over St Mirren last time out secured a place in the Europa League next term, while the Bhoys recorded an Old Firm derby win against Rangers.

We say: Kilmarnock 0-3 Celtic

With a Europa League berth already secured, there could be a drop in performance levels from Kilmarnock as they face the soon-to-be Scottish champions.

Celtic passed their Rangers test with flying colours, meaning a routine success at Rugby Park on Wednesday night will confirm their Premiership title.

Aiming to secure their spot in next season's Europa Conference League, St Mirren will welcome Hearts to the SMISA Stadium for a Scottish Premiership clash on Wednesday night.

The Saints are on the verge of booking their ticket onto the continental stage despite losing to Kilmarnock last weekend, while the Maroons will be looking to build on a convincing success over Dundee.

We say: St Mirren 1-2 Hearts

St Mirren are stumbling towards the finishing line and could miss out on European football altogether if their poor run of form continues.

Shankland was back amongst the goals on the weekend for Hearts and we reckon the towering striker will fire the visitors to victory on Wednesday night.

Aberdeen vs. Livingston (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

Aberdeen play host to Livingston on Wednesday evening looking to further strengthen their hold of seventh position in the Scottish Premiership standings.

Meanwhile, Livingston make the trip to Pittodrie having already been relegated, yet still looking to end the season on a high.

We say: Aberdeen 2-0 Livingston

Having got back to winning ways at the weekend, Livingston will fancy their chances of causing a surprise at Pittodrie. Nevertheless, we cannot ignore the Dons are the better team and have home advantage in their favour, leading us to predict a solid victory with a clean sheet.

Hibernian play host to Motherwell on Wednesday evening looking for the win they require to move back into the top eight of the Scottish Premiership standings.

As for the visitors, they make the visit to Easter Road holding a one-point advantage over the home side, as well as trailing seventh by the same margin.

We say: Hibernian 1-2 Motherwell

With Montgomery coming under increasing pressure, he will hope that his players can deliver when he may require a win to keep his job. However, we are backing the visitors to battle their way to success, guaranteeing a minimum of eighth spot in the process.

In the penultimate round of regular-season matches, St Johnstone and Ross County will meet at McDiarmid Park on Wednesday in a crucial battle at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership table.

The visitors currently find themselves two points better off than their hosts, who occupy the relegation playoff place with two games remaining after both suffering defeats at the weekend.

We say: St Johnstone 1-1 Ross County

Given the high stakes in the battle for automatic Scottish Premiership survival we anticipate a cagey encounter at McDiarmid Park on Wednesday and see a share of the spoils as the most likely outcome, as the hosts know a defeat will condemn them to the relegation playoff.
