Celtic travel to Livingston today to face their bogey team on a bogey pitch.

Celtic have failed to score in both of their league meetings with Livingston so far this season (D1 L1); the last side to keep a clean sheet in three consecutive league matches against Celtic were Livingston themselves from November 2018 to October 2019.

Livingston have only lost one of their last seven home league games so Celtic will need to bring their A-game today.

Celtic striker Giorgos Giakoumakis will return after missing two matches through illness. Manager Ange Postecoglou had Albian Ajeti back on the bench in midweek and has no fresh injury worries.

David Turnbull and Kyogo Furuhashi remain on the sidelines following hamstring tears.

Livingstonย have a fully-fit squad for the visit of cinch Premiership leaders Celtic on Sunday.

With the teams just released this is how the Hoops line up today:

Ange has sprung one or two surprises with his starting eleven today. Abada, Juaranovic, Hatate and O’Riley have dropped to the bench to be replaced by Ralston, Forrest, Rogic and Bitton.

Most fans probably expected Giakoumakis to come straight back into the team but he also starts on the bench.

Celtic are unbeaten in their last 23 league matches (W19 D4), with their last such defeat coming away to Livingston in September. Ange Postecoglou will take the reins for his 50th competitive game as the Celtic manager today.

  1. No surprises today. Celtic will need 3 to win. McGregor should be ashamed of himself as a professional footballer to hit a penalty as bad and then head the ball like a 10 year old. Very very poor from the captain
