History of the Glasgow Celtic v Inverness Caledonian Thistle fixture

Celtic prepare to entertain Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The The Bhoys have drawn both of the previous games against their opponents, however.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Celtic Park was less than a year ago, in November 2004, with Celtic running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Glasgow Celtic could not have a more impressive recent home form, having won each of the last six games. In this time, The Bhoys have rattled up an impressive 15 goals, and conceded 2.

Inverness CT's away form is equally impressive, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. Just 6 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 2 have been let in at the wrong end.

Celtic are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 16 points from 7 games. Inverness CT see themselves just below half way in the Bank of Scotland Scottish Premier, showing a record of 8 points from their 7 games played so far,
