Kilmarnock v Celtic Preview
Kilmarnock Manager Kenny Shiels
“It’s not a great time to play them. There never is a good time to play the Old Firm because they are so strong and they’ve got so many good players.
“When they’re on the back of a defeat, I’m sure case history will tell you that both sides can happen – they can be lacking in confidence or it can engender great spirit to come back and win the game.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon
“Kilmarnock are a good footballing team and they have carried it on from last season.
“They have lost a few players but Kenny (Shiels) seems to have replaced them.
“It might be open and it might be a good game of football.”
