Back to league action on Sunday for the champions as we travel to face Livingston for a 12.00 kick off.
Celtic currently sit proudly top of the SPFL and our Europa League group after gaining revenge against CFR Cluj on Thursday night. Celtic were well worthy of their 2-0 score line and could have had more if Jullien had better placed a trio of headers. Next up in the Europa is a double header against Lazio.
Livingston started the campaign well, they were undefeated throughout the league cup section and first month of the league however their last win was against St Mirren on the 31st August and they have been beaten every game since. Last weekend Hamilton beat them 2-1. Livingston are sitting in 6th in the league on 8 points, with a record of two wins, two draws and three defeats.
So far this season there has been no European hang over for Celtic, with them winning every game on their return to league action and its crucial Celtic win away to Livingston after drawing away to Hibs last week. That gave sevco the chance to move a point behind. We have a chance to put a bit of pressure on them ahead of their game at Ibrox, which in all honesty they should win, it’s against Hamilton.
After tomorrow it’s another international break so the players will be travelling all around the world, hopefully they will all stay injury free.
Celtic should have too much for Livingston and be looking to get back to winning ways in the league.
Prediction Livingston 0-4 Celtic
Mick Kane hails from Glasgow. He has been hooked on Celtic since he went to his first game when he was 7. Celtic beat Hamilton 8-3 at Celtic Park on the 3rd of January 1987. His favourite player at the time, Brian McClair scored four goals.
He started going regular as a 16 year old when Celtic played at Hampden for the season, being a Southsider it meant a short train journey to get to Hampden. From then he has had a season ticket travelled around Europe for games as Celtic became the dominant force in Scottish football again. A nice change from growing up during Rangers run to 9 in a row.
