Queens Park Rangers player Liam Kelly, formerly of Rangers and Livingston, has taken to Twitter to discuss Celtic’s loss. Livingston beat Celtic 2-0 at the Tony Macaroni Arena to shock the champions.
Scott Robinson and Lyndon Dykes scored the goals as Livi downed the champions. They took full advantage of Celtic’s numerical disadvantage. Ryan Christie was sent off in the first half and Livingston racked up a couple of goals to get the win.
Celtic failed to score away at Livingston for the second successive season. Last November, the Bhoys were held to a 0-0 draw at the Tony Macaroni Arena. This allowed Hearts to go level and Rangers to catch up in the league table.
Kelly was in goal for Livingston that day. The ex-Rangers youth product produced a string of fine saves to fend off his former rivals. And he seemed to enjoy Sunday’s result as he looked back to last year. On Twitter, Kelly said: “Thought we done well to get a 0-0 last year. Lions running riot.”
Thought we done well to get a 0-0 last year 😂. Lions running riot.

It was the 0-0 draw with Celtic last season that made many fans sit up and appreciate just how good Kelly can be as a goalkeeper. His display was inspired and he would not be beaten.
But Livingston went above and beyond to get the win against Celtic. Neil Lennon’s men were admittedly poor. But it was a strong performance from the Livingston team – who hit Celtic on the break and defended stoutly. Kelly would be proud.
