The Hoops entertain a Livingston side in freefall at Parkhead this weekend

There isn't much festive feeling in the air among the Celtic fanbase at present as Brendan Rodgers' side look to their their Scottish Premiership title bid back on course against rock-bottom Livingston on Saturday.

The Hoops slumped to back-to-back league defeats for the first time in a decade after losing to Kilmarnock and Hearts and Rodgers will know a victory is needed against the West Lothian strugglers at Parkhead to get their stuttering campaign kickstarted again.

Supporters have witnessed their commanding lead at the top of the table shrink to just two points with revitalised Rangers recovering well from a lacklustre start to the season under Philippe Clement.


Ahead of the Old Firm derby on December 30, Rodgers will also want to see a dramatic improvement in performance level after his team dropped further points against St Johnstone and Motherwell earlier this term. They have been unable to break teams who often set up in a low defensive block down.

Livingston, meanwhile, are currently in freefall and are in danger of being cut further adrift at the bottom. The Lions have collected only one point from their last nine matches, with their latest defeat coming against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Wednesday. They did, however, manage to end their seven-match run without a goal.
