The only time I've had a problem with old yeast was a recent pitch of an expired packet of Nottingham.

I pitched a second packet (also expired) after 24 hours and then a packet of Windsor when there was no activity 36 hours later.

The beer turned out great, so it wasn't really a problem.

Since I'm making starters anyway when I use liquid yeast, I've never really been to concerned about it.
