Celtic vs Kilmarnock Match Preview
Celtic can leave Rangers with no margin for error by moving even closer to the brink of retaining the Scottish Premiership title with victory against Kilmarnock.
With four rounds of matches to go, Celtic lead their fierce rivals by nine points. If they beat Kilmarnock on Saturday lunchtime, it would mean any points dropped by Rangers between now and the end of the season would render the title race over.
That could even occur on Sunday afternoon when Rangers host an Aberdeen side whom they have beaten only once in six meetings this term.
It’s now a long odds-on chance that Celtic will complete the first ever ‘treble Treble’ in any major footballing nation in consecutive years, with the likelihood being that only Hearts can stop them from achieving that remarkable feat in the Scottish Cup Final.
Although the Hoops have drawn their last two league games 0-0, their form is not a worry because in-between they won the Scottish Cup semi-final 3-0 against Aberdeen and have conceded only one goal in their latest eight matches.
Kilmarnock are also proving very solid at the back just now but in a game that should be tight according to recent evidence, Celtic can be expected to grind out a crucial narrow success.
