Celtic prepare to entertain Hibernian at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Bhoys are clearly on top, having won 81 and lost only 23 of the 134 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Celtic Park was less than a year ago, in April 2005, as the visitors ran out cosy 1-3 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
