Celtic will hope to strengthen their grip on top spot in the Scottish Premiership when they take on Kilmarnock at Celtic Park on Saturday.
Brendan Rodgers' side are currently leading the way in the league and they can equal their previous record of 62 domestic games unbeaten by avoiding defeat. They will be confident coming into the game following a 3-0 win over title rivals Aberdeen,
Kilmarnock drew 1-1 with Rangers in dramatic fashion in their last outing. While the Hoops can potentially go further clear at the top of the division, a win for Killie will propel them away from the bottom.

BETTING & MATCH ODDS
Celtic are 1/9 favourites to win according to dabblebet, with Kilmarnock priced at 22/1 to upset the Hoops. A draw is available at 8/1.
Celtic are on course to surpass their own record in the coming weeks and Brendan Rodgers will be determined to ensure that his team maintain their focus as the spotlight intensifies.
While they have struggled to make an impact in Europe, the Hoops are currently unbeaten in 61 domestic games and they can equal the record they previously set in 1917 if they avoid defeat against Kilmarnock at home.
Rodgers' men are boosted by the form of Moussa Dembele, who scored twice in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Aberdeen and they will hope to see more of the same from the French striker, who has missed a bulk of the season already.
However, they come up against a resilient Kilmarnock outfit who are buoyant following the appointment of former Chelsea assistant Steve Clarke, who saw his side snatch a last-minute draw away to Rangers, in his first match in charge.
