Kilmarnock are boosted by the return of Danny Buijs and Liam Kelly for their game against Celtic.

But long-term casualty Ryan O`Leary remains on the sidelines with a cruciate ligament injury.

Beram Kayal, Joe Ledley, Glenn Loovens and Cha Du-ri all come back into contention for Celtic.

But Georgios Samaras and Mark Wilson are doubtful, with Kris Commons is suspended and Scott Brown, Emilio Izaguirre and Kelvin Wilson also out.

Kilmarnock Manager Kenny Shiels:

"It's not a great time to play them. There never is a good time to play the Old Firm because they are so strong and they've got so many good players.

"When they're on the back of a defeat, I'm sure case history will tell you that both sides can happen - they can be lacking in confidence or it can engender great spirit to come back and win the game.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon:

"Kilmarnock are a good footballing team and they have carried it on from last season.

"They have lost a few players but Kenny (Shiels) seems to have replaced them.

"It might be open and it might be a good game of football."
