Kilmarnock vs Celtic: Probable Lineups

Celtic are on the cusp of their third consecutive Scottish Premiership title, and a trip to Rugby Park on Wednesday night offers them a chance to seal the deal against Kilmarnock.

The home side are already celebrating after securing a Europa League spot with their recent win over St Mirren. The atmosphere at Rugby Park is sure to be electric, with Kilmarnock fans eager to send their heroes off in style.

Kilmarnock boss Tommy Wright will have to cope without midfielder Brad Lyons, who picked up a hamstring injury earlier this month. Winger James Balagizi is also unavailable with a knee problem.

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou may choose to rotate his squad after a tough Old Firm derby win against Rangers. Midfielder James McCarthy remains sidelined with a hamstring strain, but Cameron Carter-Vickers is expected to keep his place in central defence alongside Liam Scales. Players like Nicolas-Gerrit Kuhn and Adam Idah could be given a chance to impress if Postecoglou decides to freshen things up in attack.

Here’s a possible line-up for both teams:

Kilmarnock: Dennis; Mayo, Deas, Findlay, Ndaba; Armstrong, Donnelly, Watson, Kennedy; Watkins, Vassell

Celtic: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor; McGregor, O’Riley, Hatate; Kuhn, Maeda, Furuhashi
