Neil Lennon warned of a "dangerous" trip to Livingston as he looks for Celtic to go into the international break still top of the Scottish Premiership.

The Hoops went to the summit of their Europa League section with a 2-0 win over Romanian side Cluj at Parkhead on Thursday night, giving them four points from two Group E games ahead of their double-header against Italian outfit Lazio.

Lennon's side are one point clear of Old Firm rivals Rangers at the top of the league as they turn their attention to Livi's artificial surface tomorrow lunchtime.

Speaking at the training ground at Lennoxtown, the Northern Irishman revealed there were "no reported injuries in his squad" before stressing the desire to come away with three points.

He said: "Tomorrow we will have to assess how they are feeling, their body language, the fatigue element from their exertions last night.

"The game is dangerous. It is a difficult tie, Livingston away.

"I think we played them once there last year and drew 0-0. We know that goalscoring opportunities are at a premium.

"We played on the plastic at Hamilton, played well but only got the one goal. They are a great example of clubs with a good spirit, who are well organised with hungry players. They are a real success story of the last four or five seasons."
