Unfortunately, the show must go on and for Celtic fans this season the show has been a shit show. Stumbling from one disaster to the next there seems to be no bottom to the cliff Celtic Football Club has fallen off.
The latest calamity in a long line of calamities is the loan transfer of one Oliver Ntcham to Marseille which sparked Andre Villas-Boas to offer his resignation after declaring he didn’t want the player.
As usual Celtic’s incoming January players amounted to another loan signing. The Hoops signed Everton right-back Jonjoe Kenny and Neil Lennon has said he is ready to play tonight at Rugby Park.
Rugby Park is usually a bogey ground for the Bhoys but Kilmarnock have lost seven of their last eight league meetings with Celtic, drawing the other 1-1 in August of this season.
After another horrible performance at the weekend and yet another defeat this time at the hands of St. Mirren Neil Lennon is still trying to put a team of winners on the park and this is his starting eleven for tonight’s game:
✅ #CelticFC debut for Jonjoe Kenny!

Lennon kind of hinted at Kenny starting tonight and the new loan signing gets into the starting eleven straight away at the expense of Shane Duffy and Nir Bitton as Welsh comes in to partner Ajer who drops back into centre back. Scott Brown also returns to the fold after a suspension with Ryan Christie and Ajeti also getting the nod.
You can watch tonights game on Sky Sports from 7pm with Kick-off at 7.45pm
