Vasilis Barkas makes his Celtic debut at Kilmarnock today, replacing Scott Bain in goals at Rugby Park.

Last week the former AEK Athens keeper had to settle for a place on the bench against Hamilton but comes in to the side as Neil Lennon makes one change. Scott Robertson replaces Tom Rogic on the bench.

Today is Celtic’s second visit to Rugby Park of this year, in January they enjoyed a 3-1 win as Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard laid down a marker for the remainder of the season.

Last week Kilmarnock lost 2-1 away to Hibs with manager Alex Dyer changing goalkeeper at half-time, Chris Burke scored the Killie goal from a free kick.

On Wednesday at 6pm Celtic are away to St Mirren with the game kicking off at 6pm. Hibs and Raith Rovers share top spot with six points from two matches following yesterday’s matches which all resulted in away wins.
