Celtic prepare to entertain Aberdeen at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Bhoys are clearly on top, having won 79 and lost only 24 of the 129 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Celtic Park was less than a year ago, in May 2005, with Celtic running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
