Celtic seem to be stumbling their way towards 8-in-a-row and really could be doing with a big victory to get the fans back behind them before the push for the treble.
Steve Clarke’s men have had an incredible 18 months or so but three red cards last weekend could leave them vulnerable, especially without their first choice centre-backs (pending appeal).
I fancy Lenny to make a few interesting inclusions with maybe Euan Henderson or Timo Weah starting on Saturday to really have a go at Killie on what will be a very emotional day, as we remember the life and career of the great Billy McNeill.
There will be a mixture of emotions at Celtic Park on Saturday as the club pay homage to Billy McNeill.
The manager shouldn’t have much to say in the dressing room with the week that it’s been at the club. Celtic should strive for victory in this match and show why they are champions.
Kilmarnock have been a difficult opponent for Celtic since Steve Clarke took the reigns of the Ayrshire club but with the result against Aberdeen last week, they won’t come into the game with bags of confidence.
Celtic have shown that, when it comes to the crunch they can step up, and Saturday should be no different with the occasion that it is at Celtic Park.
Celtic will make another attempt to take a big step towards retaining the SPFL trophy this weekend in what will be a hugely emotional day at Celtic Park as players, fans and officials pay their respects to Billy McNeill. A stuttering performance at Easter Road last week will need to be forgotten about as Stevie Clarke’s well-organised Kilmarnock team come to Celtic Park.
Lennon will probably make a few changes after the disappointing display in the capital last week, maybe going for a bit more flair in midfield from the start with Rogic. Other options available up front could allow for a reshuffle of the formation. Kilmarnock will have a few regulars missing after finishing last week’s match against Aberdeen with eight men.
