Only a win will satisfy the Celtic supporters in this Celtic Park clash with Livingston, having a healthy lead on the opposition in the Premiership table.

Celtic have less rest than Livingston in this fixture, as the hosts were involved in a Premiership game only three days ago. That game was an away game at St. Mirren, so at least Celtic are thankful to return home in this one. Game on!
