Brendan Rodgers has picked Dedryck Boyata for the first time since coming to Celtic, with the defender named in the starting side to face Kilmarnock at Rugby Park this evening.

The former Manchester City stopper has been selected alongside Mikael Lustig and Erik Sviatchenko in what looks like a back three.

Boyata made 25 starts for Celtic last season under former manager Ronny Deila but has had to bid his time during this campaign.

A victory for Celtic will put them 13 points clear at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership.

Emilio Izaguirre is named on the bench for Celtic after appearing in World Cup qualifier for Honduras in midweek.
