Celtic will be hoping to build on their impressive Europa League win over Lille when they return to league action against Kilmarnock this afternoon.

The champions are currently 13 points behind Rangers in the Premiership, and the gap could be 16 by kick-off depending on events at Tannadice in today’s midday encounter.

David Turnbull and Ismaila Soro were standouts for Neil Lennon’s men in Thursday’s 3-2 victory, and they’ll be hoping to remain in the starting lineup against Kilmarnock.

Alex Dyer’s side earned a 1-1 draw at Rugby Park in August, with a Chris Burke penalty cancelling out Ryan Christie’s early opener.
