CELTIC take on Livingston on Saturday on their return to SPFL action.
The bhoys are looking to maintain their top spot and know not just a win, but goals will be needed to end the weekend as number one.
There’s been a reluctance to give Celtic penalties lately, we saw it at Hampden as blatant as you like and even the Motherwell game at home. The referee’s who said more handball penalties would be given this term certainly don’t see the value in giving Celtic many.
The man in the middle of things should never matter but with fine margins, the referee has the ability to make the wrong kind of impact.
With that in mind, Celtic have been handed Andrew Dallas for their game against Livi at Celtic Park by the SFA.
The son of the former head of referee’s Hugh Dallas will be tasked with officiating the game.
Andy Milne, Frank Connor and Don Robertson complete the ensemble.
Celtic have been prolific in recent times at home and they’ll be looking to continue that run against a side they’ve struggled against in recent memory.
This will be Andrew’s first Celtic game of the season – he’s already officiated two games with Steven Gerrard’s men.
