Celtic v Kilmarnock

Champions Celtic are once again at home when hosting Kilmarnock this weekend.

The Hoops were surprisingly held in midweek by neighbours Partick Thistle following a 1-1 draw at Celtic Park.

Leading scorer Moussa Dembele returns having missed the last couple of games with hamstring trouble.

However, fellow goalscorer Leigh Griffiths is still out due to a bone fracture in his back.

Killie are without skipper Steven Smith while on loan Celtic youngster Kristoffer Ajer is ineligible to face his parent club.

Otherwise, Greg Kiltie may return from a hamstring injury, but Rory McKenzie is still doubtful and Dapo Kayode (hamstring) unavailable.
