History of the Celtic v Livingston fixture

Celtic prepare to entertain Livingston at Celtic Park on Monday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. All the previous meetings between the two have been won by the The Bhoys.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Celtic Park was less than a year ago, in January 2005, the The Bhoys carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Scottish Premier match.
