Livingston v Celtic: Experienced referee appointed for Saturday’s game

Celtic have discovered who will referee Saturday’s game against Livingston. Brendan Rodgers’ side travel to West Lothian as part of the next run of away fixtures and it will be John Beaton that has the whistle in the middle of the park.

The Scottish FA confirmed the appointments on Tuesday with Beaton set to take the whistle.

Frank Connor and Craig Ferguson will be running the line as Assistant Referees.

Craig Napier will be working as Fourth Official at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

At Clydesdale House in Glasgow, Steven McLean is on VAR duties. McLean is joined by AVAR Andrew McWilliam.

Beaton returns to referee the Scottish Champions in his first appointment of the season. It is a game in which Celtic will look to use to bounce back in after the disappointing result in the UEFA Champions League opener against Feyenoord in Rotterdam.

David Martindale’s Livi are in the middle of a difficult spell off the pitch with the Glasgow-born manager admitting that he and his wife had put money into the club. Although, it is always a difficult place to go because of Martindale’s ability to build tough, robust teams.
