Kilmarnock V Celtic - Shoot Prediction

Tough game, but we should win this.

Celtic are back tonight in league business at Rugby Park, in a game that even I think could be a tricky one for us.

The hoops are top of the league, albeit having played a game more than Rangers, by two points.

We must hit the ground running and get off to a flyer at what will be a difficult venue.

We’ll be without Ryan Christie, who serves the second match of his three game ban which was, frankly, an absolute shambles but who doesn’t want to grab Alfredo Morelos’s purple one.

Mohamed Elyounoussi (foot) and Hatem Abd Elhamed (groin) are still out, as are James Forrest and Nir Bitton.

Kristoffer Ajer and Mikey Johnston will be back, though. Here’s hoping the Rugby Park surface will be a key factor in Ajer not jumping in like a clown this evening like he usually does.

The match will be on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football, with coverage starting at 7.15pm.

The shoot prediction, and I think I may be wrong here, is......

Kilmarnock 1-3 Celtic.
