Celtic team revealed for Kilmarnock clash while Hoops waits for Scott Brown
Celtic will wait to see if Scott Brown is fit enough to play in Sunday’s Premiership clash with Kilmarnock.
The veteran midfielder came out with a calf injury in the second half of Celtic’s 1-1 draw in the Europa League with FC Copenhagen in Denmark on Thursday and will be assessed.
Lennon hopes that Leigh Griffiths and Greg Taylor will return after losing the European game with a knee and hamstring blow respectively, while Hatem Abd Elhamed (groin) and striker Mikey Johnston (knee) remain out.
Rory McKenzie is a doubt for Kilmarnock.
The attacker suffered a blow to the leg during Sunday’s defeat against Hibernian and lost when Killie was unloaded from the William Hill Scottish Cup in an extra-time 4-3 thriller with Aberdeen.
Striker Harry Bunn will certainly be absent again with a complaint in the calf while midfielders Innes Cameron and Adam Frizzell are still confined to the treatment room with knee injuries.
Temporary Team Celtic:
Forster, Frimpong, Bauer, Hayes, ajer, Bolingoli, Simunovic, Taylor, JULLIEN Bitton, Brown, McGregor, Rogic, Ntcham, Christie, Forrest, Soro, Elyounoussi, Edouard, Klimala, Griffiths, Welsh, Gordon, Bain.
Temporary team Kilmarnock: Branescu, O’Donnell, Findlay, Hamalainen, Broadfoot, Del Fabro, Dicker, Power, El Makrini, Brophy, McKenzie, Burke, Kiltie, Kabamba, Millen, Lyle, Connell, Johnson, Koprivec.
