Kilmarnock v Celtic

Celtic travel to face Kilmarnock in an early afternoon clash on Saturday (kick-off 12.30pm).

Midfielder Tom Rogic has recovered from the blow to the head suffered against FC Astana in midweek, although winger Jonny Hayes requires checking.

Defensive pair Erik Sviatchenko and Dedryck Boyata (both knee) are still ruled out alongside midfielder Eboue Kouassi (ankle) and striker Moussa Dembele (hamstring).

"Whoever we hand the baton to, whether we make lots of changes or not, we'll always put out a team that is very focused to win the game," manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "We made eight changes in the game against Kilmarnock and the most important thing was that we played well, performed well and got the victory.

"We're away from home and we've got the game on Tuesday, but whatever team will play, it will be a strong team looking to get the three points."

Killie are without suspended defender Kirk Broadfoot but skipper Steven Smith has recovered from a groin problem.

However, Gary Dicker, Greg Kiltie and Scott Boyd remain sidelined.
