Kilmarnock v Celtic Preview
Kilmarnock have made a solid enough start to their campaign, with seven points from five games leaving them in mid-table in these early stages.
Celtic, although second in the standings going into the weekend’s games, find themselves five points adrift of early pacesetters Hearts and have averaged just a goal per game in their five league games to date.
In addition to an early and costly exit from the UEFA Champions League and a largely disappointing transfer window, this past few months has unquestionably been the toughest of Rodgers’ tenure to date.
“Out of the five league games we’ve played, three of them have been decided by referees. That’s not correct. That’s 60%. That’s too many.”
Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke is not happy with the officials this season.
