    Time:90'
    • Kilmarnock
    • Celtic
    • 90'+3 Awful corner!! Killie clear and that's the final whistle!! It's finished Kilmarnock 1 Celtic 0 and it's Maguire rather then Keane who takes the headlines tonight!
    • 90'+3 And Celtic have a corner. Boruc is coming forward!
    • 90'+3 Killie are almost there. Long ball in from N'Guemo. It's headed clear.
    • 90'+2 And the Celtic fans are leaving in droves as Bryson makes another crisp tackle.
    • 90'+2 The corner's taken and Celtic have a free kick. Boruc thumps it long as the whistles ring out around Rugby Park.
    • 90'+1 And now Killie win a corner. Bryson ambles across.
    • 90' They won't rush to take this one! And there'll be three extra minutes as Killie win a throw.
    • 89' And Liam Kelly takes on the entire Celtic defence and N'Guemo brings him down! Free kick to Kilmarnock.
    • 88' And still Celtic come forward! Caddis. It finds McGeady!! Good cross!! Kamara with the header - into Bell's arms!
    • 87' And straight down the other end!! Keane with the snapshot!! Saved by Bell again!!
    • 86' We're in the last five minutes as Bryson attacks the Celtic defence!! That's a great save by Boruc!! That was almost it for Celtic!
    • 84' Tony Mowbray has played Scott Brown at left back tonight. That's an odd decision when Brown would have been expected - and needed - to drive at Kilmarnock!
    • 83' And the whistle blows as Fortune rises. Relief for Kilmarnock as Bell bangs it long.
    • 83' Kamara takes it and that'll be a second corner!
    • 82' It's a Celtic free kick. And that's a cheap corner given away by Kiernan!
    • 81' We're in the last 10 minutes! McGeady with a great cross!! Ford heads it out but only as far as Ki!! He shoots, but he's pulled it wide!!
    • 80' Pascali is up and meanwhile the goalscorer Chris Maguire makes way for Scott Severin.
    • 79' And Pascali gets treatment. Oddly, Brown has taken the Celtic skipper's armband off Glenn Loovens!
    • 78' Another great defensive header by Manuel Pascali as Caddis' delivery seemed destined for Keane.
    • 77' Kamara with the delivery!! LOOVENS!! He's headed wide!! Great chance for Celtic!! He should have at least hit the target!!
    • 76' Celtic have turned the screw again. Kilmarnock need a break here, but Celtic have another corner.
    • 76' Fortune again with a dangerous ball across the box. Keane slips and Killie clear.
    • 75' Ki takes it, but it's Maguire who picks it up at the far post and comes away with it.
    • 75' Poor clearance by Kilmarnock and Hay concedes the corner.
    • 74' And here we go. Rob Kiernan is on for Tim Clancy for Kilmarnock, while Celtic's Lee Naylor makes way for Brown.
    • 73' And Scott Brown is about to come on for Celtic, while Rob Kiernan is also waiting in the wings for Killie.
    • 72' Good play by N'Guemo as he comes out of defence. Fortune now on the right...lays it back, but Bryson breaks it up and comes away.
    • 71' We're in the final 20 minutes. Great urgency from Celtic - as you'd expect - but Killie are acquitting themselves well.
    • 69' Quick free kick taken by Celtic in the centre circle. Caddis to Ki. Kamara now. In comes the cross and it's Bell with a less than confident punch out this time, but it's good enough.
    • 68' Poor ball into the Celtic midfield but Maguire can't bring it under control. It's a Celtic throw.
    • 66' Fortune with another strong run down the right. He knocks the ball in and Keane with the first time volley!! It hits Ford, but the ref says goal-kick - much to Keane's disgust!
    • 66' Sammon had no chance of getting that ball but still showed great determination.
    • 65' It was 2001 when Kilmarnock last defeated Celtic, but there's a long way to go yet.
    • 65' Celtic coming forward again. In comes the cross and that's another good take under pressure by Bell.
    • 63' Sub for Kilmarnock. Taouil is off and is replaced by Conor Sammon.
    • 62' FORTUNE!! Another great save by Bell! The Celtic man gets free at the near post, but Bell gets down quickly to block!!
    • 62' Again, some indecision in the Kilmarnock defence. Caddis had a lot of time there, but McGeady didn't react quick enough.
    • 61' Thompson cleans up under perssure from Maguire. He had to be sure there!
    • 60' It's certainly competitive and it's Killie who are up for the fight!
    • 59' Kamara trying to drive Celtic forward but N'Guemo joins McGeady in the book for a late challenge on Kelly.
    • 58' And it's Kilmarnock's corner. Bryson delivers, it comes out and Kyle is offside when the ball comes back in.
    • 57' All the talk was on Celtic's loan signing before the match, but it's Killie's loanee who has done the damage!
    • 57' Bryson will take the free kick. Lofted into the Celtic box. Kyle can't get his boot on it and Celtic clear.
    • 56' Yellow card for McGeady for a petulant hack at Garry Hay.
    • 53' And there's another Celtic sub. Josh Thompson comes on for Jos Hooiveld! Looks like a hamstring.
    • 53' GOAL KILMARNOCK!! Chris Maguire lets fly and it creeps beyond Boruc into the net. Boruc may have been unsighted, but Killie are ahead!! 1-0!
    • 52' Mehdi Taouil now...he cuts it back to Maguire..
    • 52' Bell punches it away from under his bar.
    • 52' And Fortune with the effort. That's off Ford for another Celtic corner.
    • 51' Kyle gives it away to Kamara. His first touch is poor but that's belted against Fortune and causes some indecision in the Killie defence.
    • 50' Oooh! Poor delivery by Naylor! Didn't beat the first man and now Fortune is offside!
    • 50' There's a free kick to Celtic right on the corner of the box.
    • 49' Good play by Kilmarnock. They're playing some neat football but the final ball is letting them down and giving possession back to the visitors.
    • 48' Again Celtic regain possession. Caddis again whips in the cross. Headed clear with Fortune and Keane waiting on the posts.
    • 47' Caddis with a cross. Kamara rises but can't keep it down. Goal kick to Kilmarnock.
    • 46' But they're forced backwards. That's better. N'Guemo to Kamara. Good run by the Fulham loanee. Cleared by Killie into the Rugby Park night sky.
    • 46' Early free kick for the visitors.
    • 46' And it's Celtic who get us underway in the second period!
    • 45' And that's the half time whistle! It's Kilmarnock 0 Celtic 0 at the break.
    • 45' Too strong by Hay. Maguire can only watch it fly over his head.
    • 45' We're in the last minute as Ki upends Taouil. Free kick to Kilmarnock, midway in the Celtic half.
    • 44' Good run by Craig Bryson! He has a sight of goal! Out comes Boruc but it's Lee Naylor who thumps it into touch. Good defending.
    • 43' Kamara almost gets away with the help of Fortune. Bell is alert and smashes it away to safety.
    • 42' Garry Hay is robbed and McGeady hurtles down the right. Liam Kelly races across to mop up.
    • 41' There's a surprising amount of empty seats at Rugby Park given the media frenzy surrounding Robbie Keane.
    • 40' Kyle is spoken to by the ref following Fortune's attempt to make inroads into the blue and white defence.
    • 39' Kilmarnock were asleep at the switch there. Keane just brought the ball down and found himself clean through!
    • 38' KEANE!! Great touch by the new man!! He's through on goal and tries to curl it beyond the sprawling Bell! Good save by the keeper!! And Keane can't get to the loose ball!
    • 37' Loovens with a good defensive header under pressure by Ford.
    • 36' Killie have a throw. That's a waste. Straight to the Celtic defence, but that's a Kilmarnock free kick midway in the Celtic half.
    • 35' Keane with a little chip, but he's too close to goal and Bell watches that one safely over the bar.
    • 34' A slip by Kamara as he looks to get in. Relief for the ref there! The ball bounced off him and gave Celtic the opportunity to attack!
    • 33' Kyle trying to pressure Loovens. but Killie's good start is a memory at the moment.
    • 31' Apparently it's a thigh injury that's brought Andreas Hinkel's night to a premature end.
    • 30' KEANE!! Great chance for the Irishman! Aiden McGeady sets him up and Keane tries to side-foot it into the corner! Just wide!!
    • 29' And that's the first change of the night. Hinkel is off and Paul Caddis in on.
    • 29' Again Killie clear. Ki now for Celtic. McGeady on the right. He puts in the cross and Kelly clears.
    • 29' That's good crisp passing by Celtic. Fortune wins another Celtic corner.
    • 27' Haven't heard too much of Robbie Keane in the last ten minutes as Hinkel puts in a woeful cross. No wonder the German shakes his head.
    • 26' Naylor delivers hard and fast to the near post. Too near to Bell who makes a clean catch.
    • 26' Aiden McGeady. He's won a free kick wide on the right.
    • 25' Kyle and Loovens again. This time the Dutchman does enough to put Kyle off his header. Celtic have a goal kick.
    • 24' Chris Maguire tries to relieve the pressure, but he can't hold on to that ball. Kyle picks it up and Loovens has given away an unnecessary corner!
    • 23' Celtic have suddenly stepped up a gear and it's back to the wall time for Killie at the moment.
    • 22' KAMARA!! That's a thumping left foot strike that just goes wide! In fairness, it looked like Bell had that covered!
    • 21' SO CLOSE FOR CELTIC!! Celtic win a corner, Fortune heads it on at the near post past Bell but there's Garry Hay to clear off the line!!
    • 20' It's cleared, but not for long. The ball comes out to Hamill and he has the time for another strike. No wonder Boruc is angry. The Kilmarnock man had plenty of time to line that one up!
    • 19' Free kick to Kilmarnock as Glen Loovens bundles into Kyle.
    • 18' Killie again going for the long ball. Again it's safely in Boruc's arms.
    • 17' Kelly again. This time he tries to find Jamie Hamill with a lofted ball. Hinkel shepherds that one out for a Celtic goal kick.
    • 16' Liam Kelly tries his luck and Boruc watches that one sail into the Rugby Park crowd.
    • 15' It's been a lively start to the match. And we've seen more of Killie in the opening 15 minutes.
    • 13' And now Clancy lofts in a high ball to Kevin Kyle. That's too high and all Kyle can do is nod it gently to Boruc.
    • 12' And the boos ring out around Rugby Park. That looked like a free kick to Killie, but the ref played an advantage and Boruc eventually has to pluck a cross from under his bar.
    • 11' KELLY WITH THE EFFORT! Boruc got everything behind it, but worth a pop. That's Kilmarnock's first effort on goal.
    • 11' Good run by Chris Maguire as Killie break. That'll give him confidence.
    • 10' Naylor with the delivery and it'll be another corner as the ball is bundled out at the near post.
    • 9' Boruc thumps it away. Keane finds McGeady. And he's won a corner out of nothing!
    • 8' Mehdi Taouil skips through and Chris Maguire goes down under Landry N'Guemo's challenge. Again, there's no foul.
    • 7' KI WITH THE EFFORT!! Curled around the wall but that's a good save by Bell just inside his left post! And the keeper claims the corner. Good goalkeeping!
    • 6' Kamara is brought down and Celtic have a free kick. Ki and Naylor stand over it. It's some 25 yards out.
    • 6' And that's the first effort on goal - wayward by Ki Song-Yeung as the first shouts of Keano ring around Rugby Park.
    • 5' Good tackle by Simon Ford, but Celtic still have it. Andreas Hinkel goes down now. Howls from the Celtic faithful.
    • 4' Naylor to Kamara - and a first touch for Artur Boruc.
    • 3' Keane is certianly getting involved early on. He hits the deck but no foul.
    • 2' Some crisp passing by Killie. Kevin Kyle involved as expected, but Lee Naylor comes away with it. Good cross in by Diomansy Kamara...that's gone behind Marc-Antoine Fortune.
    • 2' Good defending by Tom Clancy. He wins his side a goal kick.
    • 1' And that's an early touch for Cameron Bell in the Kilmarnock goal as Keane tries a dummy.
    • 1' Early throw for Killie, but cleared by Celtic.
    • 1' And Killie get us underway!
    • - Our referee tonight is M Tumilty.
    • - So the stage is set and here come the teams!
    • - While Kilmarnock were involved in a thrilling 4-4 draw with Dundee United! Simon Ford, Kevin Kyle, Manuel Pascali and Craig Bryson were the men on target.
    • - Celtic will certainly expect a better performance than their last time out. Morten Rasmussen got the only goal in a narrow 1-0 win at Hamilton.
    • - So can Killie spoil the Keane party? Either way, there should be a good crowd at Rugby Park tonight!
    • - The points are vital for both sides tonight. Celtic will aim to close the gap on arch-rivals Rangers to seven points, while Killie are fighting for their SPL lives, just two points ahead of bottom club Falkirk.
    • - Celtic won the earlier SPL fixture between these two at Celtic Park. Aiden McGeady, Georgios Samaras and Niall McGinn all made the scoresheet in the Bhoys' 3-0 win.
    • - Calderwood hands a start to Aberdeen loanee Chris Maguire, while Watford pair Scott Severin and Rob Kiernan are on the bench.
    • - Although Kilmarnock can't capture the media attention afforded to Celtic's new signings, Killies' boss Jimmy Calderwood has three of his own on parade tonight.
    • - He'll have the green and white half of Glasgow fully behind him. Read about Rapturous Celtic welcome Keane.
    • - Keane takes over the number seven shirt, but he has some big boots to fill! Jimmy Johnstone, Kenny Dalglish and Henrik Larsson are Celtic legends.
    • - So Tony Mowbray hands Keane his debut - and also gives Diomansy Kamara his start for the Bhoys. And more good news for Celtic, Scott Brown returns to the bench and is expected to figure for part of tonight.
    • - CELTIC: Boruc, Hinkel, Loovens, Hooiveld, Naylor, Kamara, Ki Sung-Yeung, N'Guemo, McGeady, Fortune, Keane. Subs: Zaluska, Brown, Samaras, Rasmussen, Zhi, Thompson, Caddis.
    • - So here are those teams! KILMARNOCK: Bell, Clancy, Ford, Pascali, Hay, Hamill, Bryson, Taouil, Kelly, Maguire, Kyle. Subs: Robinson, Fowler, Invincibile, Old, Sammon, Severin, Kiernan
    • - There's extra attention on this match tonight following Tony Mowbray's capture of Robbie Keane - and the on-loan striker goes straight into the starting XI!
    • - Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of tonight's SPL clash between Kilmarnock and Celtic at Rugby Park.
