Brendan Rodgers has made one change to the Celtic side that started in the Glasgow Derby for the potential title clincher away to Kilmarnock.

Adam Idah comes in for Kyogo Furuhashi to lead the attack with a more physical presence with the club’s top scorer on the bench.

With the lead at the top reduced back to three points last night a draw or better at Rugby Park will put the hoops out of reach at the top of the SPFL Premiership table.

Daizen Maeda returned to the side on Saturday and put in a trademark shift, with no reaction to that outing he goes again on the plastic surface.

Idah has come up with some important goals since arriving on loan from Norwich and will welcome the opportunity to be involved in a title clincher.

Don Robertson is tonight’s referee as the hoops look for their first win of the season at Rugby Park after a League Cup defeat in August and SPFL reverse in December.

CELTIC: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor; McGregor, Hatate, O’Riley; Forrest, Idah, Maeda

SUBS: Bain, Palma, Kyogo, Kuhn, Nawrocki, Iwata, Bernardo, Ralston, Welsh
