After Dundee's win over Aberdeen and Ross County's draw with Hibernian in midweek brought all 12 Scottish Premiership clubs on to 29 games played, match weekend 30 of 38 is upon us.

Here's your team news, statistics and team selectors from those games:

All matches kick-off on Saturday at 15:00 GMT unless stated.

Celtic v St Johnstone

Celtic welcome back Cameron Carter-Vickers, but fellow centre-back Liam Scales is set to drop out with a knock.

Winger Yang Hyun-jun completes a two-match suspension, but Callum McGregor, Reo Hatate, Maik Nawrocki and Luis Palma will miss out again but could all be in contention to face Livingston on 30 March.

Centre-half Kerr Smith has left St Johnstone to return to parent club Aston Villa because of injury.

The Perth side remain without Ali Crawford, Drey Wright, Ross Sinclair and Cammy MacPherson.

Did you know? St Johnstone have not beaten Celtic in almost eight years but have taken a point at Celtic Park three times in the past seven years.

Hibernian v Livingston

Hibernian welcome back forward Jair Tavares after illness and midfielder Nathan Moriah-Welsh from suspension.

Right-back Lewis Miller is doubtful with a knock and is likely to join Martin Boyle, Luke Amos, Dylan Vente, Josh Campbell and Jake Doyle-Hayes on the sidelines.

Livingston are hoping a sickness bug that kept midfielder Jason Holt out last weekend and subsequently spread throughout the squad this week will not impact their selection plans too heavily.

David Carson could return after being cup-tied for the defeat at Celtic, while fellow midfielder Andrew Shinnie hopes to shake off a groin issue.

James Penrice, Scott Pittman and Jack Hamilton are all out, while captain Mikey Devlin may also remain sidelined.

Did you know? The past three Premiership meetings of Hibernian and Livingston have been won by the away side.

Kilmarnock v St Mirren

Kilmarnock centre-half Lewis Mayo drops out through suspension, while striker Kevin van Veen is a doubt.

Matty Kennedy remains on the sidelines along with Kyle Magennis and Brad Lyons.

St Mirren defender Ryan Strain is working his way back after groin surgery.

Did you know? There has not been a home winner in league meetings between Kilmarnock and St Mirren since February 2021 and Killie have not beaten the Buddies at Rugby Park since the autumn of 2019.

Motherwell v Aberdeen

Motherwell could give a debut to Moses Ebiye off the bench after the former Aalesunds striker signed this month.

But fellow forward Jon Obika has suffered another hamstring injury and defender Calum Butcher is an injury doubt.

Callum Slattery, Harry Paton, Barry Maguire and Adam Montgomery remain out.

Aberdeen have everyone available apart from injured centre-half Slobodan Rubezic.

Did you know? Both of this season's Premiership meetings of Motherwell and Aberdeen have featured six goals.

Ross County v Heart of Midlothian

Will Nightingale, Scott Allardice and Dylan Smith remain sidelined for Ross County.

Hearts hope to welcome winger Yutaro Oda and midfielder Scott Fraser back after injury.

Frankie Kent, Craig Halkett, Peter Haring, Barrie McKay, Liam Boyce and Calem Nieuwenhof all remain out.

Did you know? Ross County have not beaten Hearts since 2017 and not at home since 2013.

Dundee v Rangers (Sun, 12:00)

Dundee manager Tony Docherty expects to be selecting from the same squad he had at his disposal for Wednesday's win over Aberdeen.

Trevor Carson, Josh Mulligan, Jordan McGhee, Ryan Howley, Zach Robinson, Owen Beck, Lee Ashcroft and Diego Pineda are all set to remain sidelined.

Winger Ross McCausland and versatile defender Dujon Sterling are both fitness doubts for Rangers.

Danilo, Kieran Dowell and Abdallah Sima remain out along with winger Oscar Cortes, who has had surgery on a muscle injury.

Did you know? Since back-to-back Dens Park wins over Rangers in 2017, Dundee have taken just one Premiership point against Rangers, in a 1-1 draw in 2018.
