Kilmarnock v Celtic: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

After a crucial 2-1 Old Firm victory over Rangers, a point would be enough for Celtic to claim a third consecutive Scottish Premiership title and they head to Kilmarnock on Wednesday with that in mind. 

The hosts are fourth in the table having enjoyed a solid season and have been excellent on their own patch all term, making this an intriguing tie which could go either way.

Kilmarnock v Celtic stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Kilmarnock come into this game following a 1-0 away win at St Mirren, but it is their home record which really catches the eye. 

Derek McInnes’ men have lost just one of their last 12 home matches, with that sole defeat a narrow 2-1 reverse to title-chasing Rangers, and Killie have won eight times in that run, which began with a victory over Celtic. 

That loss for the Bhoys made it two defeats in a row at Rugby Park for Brendan Rodgers and the Northern Irish manager will be keen to snap that streak and secure a third title in a row for his side and his third Scottish Premiership too, having won two in his first spell with the club. 

Celtic are unbeaten in their last seven league games and have lost just one of their last 18 Scottish Premiership matches, winning 14 times in that run as they surge towards the title. 

The Bhoys will be feeling confident too as, despite their recent struggles at Rugby Park, they have dominated this fixture over the years, winning 182 of the 274 meetings between the pair in all competitions.

Kilmarnock v Celtic team news

Kilmarnock team news

Kyle Magennis, Brad Lyons and James Balagizi are certain absentees for the hosts while star forward Kyle Vassell was forced off in their win at St Mirren, making him a doubt for this match. 

Innes Cameron is the likeliest candidate to replace Vassell, with McInnes unlikely to rotate his lineup too much beyond that enforced change. 

Celtic team news

Adam Montgomery has joined long-term absentee James McCarthy, who is yet to play a game this season, on the sidelines but with no other injury concerns, Rodgers could name an unchanged side from the team which won at Ibrox on Saturday.
