    A chance to get back to that free flowing attacking football we are world famous for. Hopefully the bhoys picked a few tricks from midweek and we start to score goals like the one inesta scored.


    Scottish Premier League leaders Celtic are likely to be without forward Georgios Samaras against Kilmarnock.

    The Greek sustained an ankle injury against Barcelona in midweek and joins Anthony Stokes, Lassad Nouioui and Dylan McGeouch on the sidelines.

    Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels has completed a deal to bring defender Mahamadou Sissoko back to the club.

    James Fowler is out with a leg injury while both Garry Hay and Danny Racchi remain on the sidelines.

    Celtic defender Mikael Lustig: "Hopefully we can take good things [from the match in Barcelona].

    "We feel great about our game. We work for each other as a team.

    "Now it's back to the domestic [scene] and it's a totally different game.

    "It's going to be nice to be attacking again and hopefully we can do that."

    Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels: "I thought Celtic were fantastic [against Barcelona]. They did the country proud and they did the SPL proud.

    "They tested themselves against the best and came out with a very creditable scoreline.

    "It put them in a position which is opposite to their domestic situation. They went as massive underdogs to get something from the game and normally it is a role reversal. Now they know how we feel.

    "When we go there on Saturday, we are going to be similar to what they were when they went to Barcelona.

    "We are poles apart [from Celtic] in infrastructure and financial terms but we have 11 players and they have 11 players.

    "We will be looking for an edge and who knows, it's football."

    To prepare for the big match, why not (rhetorical) switch on BBC Alba* and watch Ireland Vs Scotland in the second leg of the compromised rules Hurling/shinty international from beautiful county Clare?





    *The game is also available to those posters able to view TG4 here in Ireland.

    Shhh! wee pretending watt is useless so that west brom **** off. It would be stupid if he moved there, at 18 you need to be playing to progress, not sitting on the bench.

    Interesting line up, chance for Miku to step up and show us what he can do, after saying he was frustated with his lack of matches. I have a feeling we may have to make a few changes to the line up before we see off Killie. Hope i am wrong though.

    Very lackluster start. We haven't even created any chances yet.
