Kevin Clancy will referee Saturday’s home match against Livingston- just three weeks after taking charge of Celtic’s 2-0 win over Hearts.

The talent pool available to the SFA seems to be shrinking at an alarming rate with Clancy and Nick Walsh both refereeing two of Celtic’s first seven matches.

Robbie Neilson wasn’t happy with the refereeing of his side’s visit to the champions, making a vague claim that there should be a direct relationship between free kicks awarded and yellow cards.

Two Hearts players were sent off during that match but those decisions had little impact on the match with Alex Cochrane and Tobi Sibbick both playing for the first 88 minutes.

Livingston come into the game on the back of beating Hearts last week, in their only visit to Celtic Park last season they managed a 0-0 draw.

Celtic’s 38 match unbeaten run in the SPFL Premiership dates back to losing 1-0 to Livingston on September 19 last year.
