Tony Macaroni Arena

K.O. 3pm

Celtic travelled through to West Lothian to face Livingston right off the back of the Europa League defeat against Real Betis on Thursday night. To be two up early on to capitulate and concede four goals was gut wrenching but getting back to winning ways in the league is of most importance currently. Celtic also need to get a monkey off their back in the fact that the last time they beat Livi at their ground was 14 years ago when the Hoops triumphed 1-4 in the Scottish cup (04/02/07). Since then in 4 visits there has been three draws and one Livingston victory.

To say Celtic don’t fancy their plastic pitch is an understatement and to be honest it is atrocious. For any team in any top professional league to be playing on plastic pitches does not credit the game itself and is what the fans pay good money to watch. The whole first half was so lacklustre and the game was...

Ange Postecoglou's side once again must put the disappointment of a European defeat behind them as the fixtures continue to come thick and fast, with a short trip away to West Lothian to line up against Livingston at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

A couple of months into the 2021/22 season, and it is almost like 'Angeball' is halfway there; in attack and at home, things are firing on all cylinders.

However, at the back and on the road, it's a very different tale.​

While Celtic have been capable of some truly sublime football at Parkhead, and have been...​

After Celtic's victory over the Staggies at the weekend, all attention now turns to the first matchday of the Europa League group stages as the Bhoys travel next to Spain, where a clash with Real Betis awaits.

This will be the first ever meeting between the sides, but it will not be the first visit to the city of Seville, where famously 18 years ago, more than 80,000 Celtic fans packed the streets, congregating from not just Glasgow or Ireland, but from all across Europe to even further afield, including the likes of Australia...​

CalMac returns fit from Scotland duty to lead the Hoops

The Bhoys return to action this weekend, with the visit of Ross County to Paradise and an eye to get back to winning ways, following defeats in the last 2 outings prior to the international break.

The back to back away defeats, firstly against AZ Alkmaar and then in the Glasgow derby underlined that this is still very much a team in transition and while progress under Ange Postecoglou has been seen, the recent stumbles are evident that there is much work still needed.

This past fortnight will have provided the new recruits to the squad with an opportunity to...​

Season 2020/21 was undoubtedly one to forget for the Celtic faithful. After a dynasty that produced 9 successive league titles which culminated in four consecutive domestic trebles, only to see it crumble into the shambles that was to follow.

And to make matters worse, the manner of how...
