Celtic v Kilmarnock preview

Emilio Izaguirre returns to the Celtic squad on Saturday. The

Honduran left-back has fully recovered from a broken ankle

sustained against Aberdeen in August, but defender Daniel

Majstorovic is out for six weeks with a fractured cheekbone he

sustained in the 2-0 win against St Johnstone on Sunday.

Midfielders Joe Ledley and Paddy McCourt return from ankle and calf

strains respectively, while striker Anthony Stokes is still a doubt

with a calf strain. Kilmarnock midfielder Dean Shiels will test out

his injured ankle ahead of the clash at Celtic. However, Killie

will not take risks with the on-loan Doncaster player with a game

against St Johnstone next Wednesday to consider. Midfielder James

Fowler returns from suspension but striker William Gros and

defender Ryan O’Leary remain on the sidelines. Celtic (from):
