Kilmarnock can take something from game with jaded champions
Celtic don't event ry to hide their disdain for Rugby Park plastic pitch
Sky Sports Football, 12.30pm Sunday
Kilmarnock are worth backing to take something from their game against jaded champions Celtic.
Brendan Rodgers' side hate their trips to Ayrshire and don't even try to hide their disdain for Rugby Park's plastic surface.
The Hoops needed a late goal from sub Leigh Griffiths to see off dogged Rosenborg in the Europa League, but they are not scoring the amount of goals they netted last season, nor creating as many chances.
You could argue that Killie have gone slightly backwards too from last season's heights, but they have grizzled old pros who will love a scrap and they have plenty of creativity in Jordan Jones and Greg Stewart. They could snatch at least a draw against Celtic.
Kilmarnock & draw double chance
1pt 2-1 bet365
Stuart Findlay, Scott Boyd and Grey Taylor are doubtful. Gary Dicker is back from suspension.
Nir Bitton is sidelined and Olivier Ntcham is suspended. Kristoffer Ajer is a doubt.
Celtic have failed to beat Killie on their last three meetings.
