Celtic v Kilmarnock – last time at Paradise, great goal from Palma

Celtic face Kilmarnock this afternoon in the Cinch Premiership. In three meetings this season, Killie have won twice (both at Rugby Park) and Celtic have won once, with that win coming on October 7 2023. Brendan will be hoping his team can make a statement by swatting aside Killie as they did on that day.

Reo Hatate collected the ball from skipper Callum McGregor before moving away from Watson, aided by a cute nutmeg, moving into the box and firing an effort into the net.

Luis Palma made it 2-0 to Celtic with a lovely curled effort. After picking the ball up following a mistake by goalkeeper Will Dennis, the Honduran attempted a pass to a colleague before the ball broke back in front of him.

Rather than attempting another pass, Palma unleashed a curling effort that found the net to double the advantage of Brendan Rodgers’ team.

Greg Taylor scored Celtic’s third of the afternoon with a tap-in at the back post. Killie threatened to make things interesting with a Watson goal but the left-back restored the two goal cushion for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

As he has done on a few occasions this afternoon, Maeda won the header at the front post from Matt O’Riley’s corner and sent the ball into the path of Taylor, who couldn’t miss.
