Celtic team news

Yang Hyun-Jun picked up a red card in the last league match against Hearts. Celtic appealed the decision but they were unsuccessful and the South Korean winger will now be suspended for the next two games. Therefore, he will miss the game against Livingston this weekend.

Furthermore, Reo Hatate is missing this game due to an injury. There is hope that he could be back after the international break at the end of this month.

Maik Nawrocki missed the recent match against Hearts. It doesn't look like he will return in time for the Scottish Cup quarterfinal this weekend either.

Perhaps the biggest miss of all will be Callum McGregor. The captain is out with an injury as well and might not be back before the international break.

Livingston team news

The travelling side have no injuries or suspensions heading into this game. That is an advantage for David Martindale's side.
