Neil Lennon is still awaiting the return of Hatem Abd Elhamed and Michael Johnston for selection. Leigh Griffiths & Greg Taylor were both late assessments for today’s clash at Paradise against Kilmarnock but both have made it into the starting eleven. Neil Lennon will be more than pleased to have a more or less full-strength squad to deal with the 3 games a week fixture pile-up.
Jeremie Frimpong has also kept his place in the team, with big Jozo taking up the third centre back position.
Kilmarnock may be on the up but the Champions have won each of their last five league meetings with them, scoring 13 goals while conceding just three.
The pars have not won in their last 12 visits to Celtic Park.
The Hoops home record is incredible this season, they have won 14 of their last 15 games at Paradise. With such a massive game of football to be played on Thursday night against Copenhagen in the last 32 of the Europa League, you might have thought Neil Lennon would tinker with today’s squad.
