Jozo Simunovic will make his second appearance on plastic since joining Celtic in 2015 when he plays at Rugby Park tonight.
Neil Lennon has switched to a 3-5-2 with Tom Rogic, Greg Taylor and Nir Bitton replaced by Simunovic, Johny Hayes and Kris Ajer. Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard continue in attack.
Like Celtic, Kilmarnock finished 2019 on a downer with a 1-0 defeat away to St Mirren seeing them drop into the bottom six.
Alex Dyer’s side bounced back with a 6-0 win over Queens Park at the weekend but a winless run through December which resulted in Angelo Alessio being sacked just before Christmas.
Back in September Celtic beat Killie 3-1 on home soil but over their last three visits to Rugby Park they have only recorded one win- thanks to Scott Brown’s dramatic goal last February.
CELTIC: Forster; Simunovic, Jullien, Ajer; Frimpong, Brown, Ntcham, McGregor, Hayes; Griffiths, Edouard
SUBS: Gordon, Taylor, Bauer, Arzani, Johnston, Bayo, Klimala
