Glasgow Celtic are due to play against Livingston in a Scottish Premiership clash at the Almondvale Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Hoops will be the favourites to win the game and anything less than three points will be a disappointment to Neil Lennon’s side.

Celtic will be looking to return to winning ways in the league after having played out to a 1-1 draw with Hibernian during their last game.

The Bhoys would have regained some confidence following their 2-0 Europa League win against CFR Cluj on Thursday.

Celtic have no new injury worries ahead of the game, according to a report which was published by Sky Sports. 

The report added that Mikey Johnston is working his way back to full fitness following a groin injury.

The likes of Jozo Simunovic (knee), Leigh Griffiths (thigh and virus), Daniel Arzani (knee) and Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain (thumb) remain out of action.

The Hoops will welcome back Vakoun Issouf Bayo for the game. The Ivorian international missed his side’s game against Cluj last week due to suspension.

Celtic have a good record against Livingston. The Hoops have managed to keep clean sheets during seven out of their nine Scottish Premiership games played away against The Lions.

Interestingly Livingston remain the only side which Hoops boss Lennon has yet to defeat during his managerial career in the top-flight. He faced them three times in the division and has not won once.

Celtic should be able to win the game as long as they get the basics right but cannot afford to take anything for granted.
