Celtic goes for sixth-straight win vs. Hearts

After a clean sweep of November awards straight Scottish Premier League win on Saturday when it hosts Hearts at Parkhead.

Gary Hooper was named SPL Player of the Month for November, highlighted by his hat trick in Celtic's 5-0 win over St Mirren which saw the striker earn a share of the league lead in goals with Nikica Jelavic of Rangers. Neil Lennon was also named SPL Manager of the Month and James Forrest was named Young Player of the Month.

All three of Celtic's award-winners have played a major role in the club's turnaround this season, as its current eight-game unbeaten streak in league play has seen its deficit in the table reduced to just four points. Celtic, on 28 points, sits in second place behind league-leading Rangers.

Rangers travel to Hibernian for Saturday's early kickoff with the home side looking to snap its four-game winless run. It won't be easy against such a stingy defense - Rangers have conceded just eight goals so far through their 17 Scottish league games.

Motherwall squares off against St Johnstone in a massive third-against-fourth contest on Saturday. With a win, St Johnstone can move to within a point of third place in the league.

Elsewhere on Saturday, last-place Aberdeen hosts St Mirren at the Pittodrie Stadium, Dunfermline hosts Kilmarnock at East End Park, and Inverness hosts Dundee United at Caledonian Stadium.
