    • 76' Celtic now trail 3-2. This game hanging on a knife edge courtesy of two terrific goals from Stokes inside three minutes.

    • 74' Harkins heads into the path of Heffernan, who swivels but knocks a volley wide of the target. So close to a fourth goal.

    • 68' Forrest tries to pick out Stokes at the back post, but he fails to keep the cross in play. More frustration for Celtic.

    • 63' Jaakkola is fouled by Stokes after Cha's cross had deflected up and into the air. Killie with the foul from their own box.
    • 62' Killie fans enjoying their day out. No doubt about that. In full voice as Bangura fails to pick up a loose ball in the box.
    • 61' Cha hoists a long ball into the heart of the Killie area, but Jaakkola comes out to take the ball with some ease.
    • 60' Heffernan on the run again for Killie, but he just runs out of pitch as the ball runs out for a goalkick to Celtic.
    • 59' Killie had lost their previous three SPL games before this one, but surely is going to be different today as Killie keep the ball.

    • 56' Ki decides to try his luck from 30 yards out, but he thumps an effort well wide of the target. Celtic yet to manage an effort on goal. Says it all really.

    • 51' Stokes with the deflected shot. Hits off Pursehouse, but into the arms of Jaakkola.

    • 48' Hefferan almost playing in Harkins for a fourth goal. Celtic toiling so badly all over the park. Majstorovic again struggling for pace.
    • 47' Celtic with two changes for this half. Wanyama replaces Kayal, while Bangura is on for Hooper.
    • 46' Celtic get this second half off and running. The visiting side facing a real uphill task.
    • 45' There goes the whistle for the break! Killie with a 3-0 lead. Celtic horrendous in the first period. No other word to describe their performance.
    • 44' Kayal takes out Shiels. Looked like a late tackle on Shiels, but no second booking. He is treading a fine line out there.
    • 43' Celtic boss Neil Lennon can't believe this. His team have been all over the place. Difficult to see where Celtic go from here.
    • 42' GOAL! Mulgrew short with a passback and Fowler races onto the ball to chip the ball over Forster. Killie lead 3-0.
    • 41' Ki plays the ball out to Cha. Celtic need to find something from somewhere. Hooper tumbles in the box, but no penalty.
    • 40' Killie working tirelessly to press space. Celtic really need a quick goal back here otherwise this game could go away from them.
    • 39' Celtic with a mountain to climb as Jaakkola punches the ball clear from Ki's delivery. Little or no danger there for Killie.
    • 38' Lovely ball across goal by Shiels. Looked to be offside, but the referee said no and the home side well on top in this match.
    • 37' GOAL!! Heffernan sticks the ball under Forster from close range and Killie lead 2-0. Celtic back line a shambles.
    • 36' Kayal booked for a late tackle on Shiels. Really stupid tackle. Another booking for the midfielder.
    • 35' Sissoko takes no chance as he rolls the ball back to Jaakkola, who knocks it long. Killie content with their shape.
    • 34' McKeown stabs a volley just wide at the edge of the box from Shiels' corner. Killie enjoying this first half.
    • 33' Forrest picks out Cha on the run before Killie break at the other end. Stunning shot by Kelly from 35 yards, but a fine diving stop by Forster. Stunning save.
    • 32' Cha goes down in the box after neat play from Hooper and Stokes, but no penalty as Jaakkola prepares to hammer a goalkick long.
    • 31' Pascali heads the ball out from Stokes' cross. Breaks to Forrest, but his cross is nodded out. Celtic starting to build some pressure.
    • 30' Harkins on the ball for Killie, but the linesman's flag has gone up for what seems to be an offside decision.
    • 29' Celtic failing to get grips with this match as Heffernan is caught offside from the ball by Harkins.
    • 28' Hooper on the dash for the visiting side, but that ball is heading straight into the arms of goalkeeper Jaakkola. All pretty routine for Killie.
    • 27' Ki and Kayal not enjoying this so far as Celtic go back to Mulgrew. Celtic being forced to go long.
    • 26' Lovely play by Heffernan to pick out Shiels for that goal. Killie with their tails up out there.
    • 25' Forster forced to save a deflected drive from Fowler. Had so much time and should have played in Harkins. Celtic all over the place in midfield.
    • 24' More horrific defending from Celtic with Cha and Majstorovic nowhere to be seen. Celtic also outnumbered in the midfield area.
    • 23' GOAL!! Shiels scores for Killie! No chance for Forster in the visiting goal as the former Hibs player rattled a low powerful drive into the net.
    • 22' Chance for Killie, but Kelly fires a volley over the bar from Shiels as he headed down and into the home player's path.
    • 21' Not so good seconds later from Majstorovic as he is left for dead by Sissoko. Free-kick to Killie. Another free-kick chance for the home side.
    • 20' Good run by Harkins down the line. Tries the cross, but Majstorovic is on hand to make the interception. Decent defending.
    • 19' Ledley with the cross to the back post for Stokes, but he can't get on the end of it as the ball drifts off him and behind.
    • 18' Stokes complaining that he was taken out late by Pascali, but the referee doesn't want to know.
    • 17' Not much emotion on the face of Neil Lennon as Matthews comes across to tackle Pursehouse.
    • 16' Harkins fancies his chances, but succeeds in lifting the shot into the wall. Poor effort really before Pursehouse tackles Stokes late. Lucky to avoid a booking there.
    • 15' Mulgew takes out Shiels with a late challenge. Real chance here for the home side to make their mark from 25 yards out with this free-kick.
    • 14' Not seen much of the home side so far as Matthews makes a timely tackle on Shiels. Killie fairly flying into the challenges in the middle of the park.
    • 13' Forrest on a strong and surging run. Tries to lift the ball to the back post, but an easy enough take for Jaakkola in the Killie goal.
    • 12' Hooper continuing to do a bit of limping around the park as Forrest picks out the rampaging run of Cha.
    • 11' Upon the replay, it looked like the ball bobbled up just before he hit it. Should still have got his body over the ball to make sure that ended up in the net.
    • 10' WHAT A MISS! Cha plays the ball across goal, but Stokes knocks over the bar from two yards out. Horrendous miss there. How did he not score from that one?
    • 9' Jaakkola races out to make the save from Forrest. Celtic trying to pick out a few holes in that Killie defence which may be easier said than done.
    • 8' Gary Hooper is limping around out there from Pursehouse. Took a nasty one on the back of his leg. Playing on at the moment.
    • 7' Much of a muchness about much of the SPL. Killie seventh in the table only two points ahead of Aberdeen in ninth. Inverness bottom of the table with eight points.
    • 6' Hooper deemed to be offside as he tried to dash up the park. Wasn't much in that decision. Kenny Shiels - the Kilmarnock manager - looking on with a pensive sort of expression. Ideal for a poker player.
    • 5' Pursehouse collides with Ledley as Celtic win a free-kick deep in their own half. They go across the park.
    • 4' Stokes showing his pace, but Pursehouse is well positioned to clear the danger. Celtic back on the ball inside their own half. Trying to get a spell on the ball.
    • 3' Celtic with a decent amount of travelling fans with them in Ayrshire. Nice flick by Heffernan, but well dealt with by Mulgrew. Celtic on the attack.
    • 2' Pitch in ideal condition for football. Celtic quickly into their stride but Killie keeping the ball on the deck as Jaakkola collects in the home goal.
    • 1' Kilmarnock get the match off and running.
    • 12.27 Teams heading out onto the park for this one. Not exactly a full house inside Rugby Park for this one. Celtic in their changed yellow shirts with Kimarnock in traditional blue and white.
    • 12.25 Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels said: "It's not a great time to play Ceitc. There never is a good time to play the Old Firm because they are so strong and they've got so many good players. When they're on the back of a defeat, I'm sure case history will tell you that both sides can happen - they can be lacking in confidence or it can engender great spirit to come back and win the game. I'm sure there could be the element of the wounded tiger but I can't answer that until I see them play."
    • 12.20 Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby said: "We have got a bit of catching up to do, but we put ourselves in this position. We are looking forward to it. We disappointed the fans, and we have to make it up to them. This year, we haven't started well, but I'm sure we have players who can stand up mentally to the pressure."
