History of the Celtic v Hibernian fixture

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 86 and lost only 23 of the 141 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Celtic Park was earlier this season, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-2 thriller, in a Scottish Premier match.
