Celtic will travel to West Lothian on Saturday afternoon to take on Livingston. A trip to the Tony Macaroni is never an easy task, and this weekend will be no different.

Team News 

Thankfully for Celtic, there were no injury worries added on Tuesday evening. Everyone who played at de Kuip will be available but none of Cameron Carter-Vickers, Maik Nawrocki, Stephen Welsh, or Liel Abada will be.

Brendan Rodgers said recently he is looking for the right moment to give Marco Tilio his debut after the Australian spent a lengthy spell on the sidelines. It remains to be seen when that moment will be.

Regarding Nat Phillips, he went over on his ankle against Dundee and resultantly came off at the break. The Englishman wasn’t involved on Tuesday, and Rodgers is yet to provide an update on the Liverpool loanee’s condition.

His return would be a sizeable boost going into the Livi’ game, but Liam Scales has deputized well at centre-half. Even with current injury issues, the Bhoys should have more than enough to win on Saturday and ensure they get their third consecutive league victory.
