What channel is the Celtic game on? TV, kick-off and live stream details for SPFL cinch Premiership match v Kilmarnock

Celtic are back on Sunday lunchtime duty in the SPFL and that means the champions are back on TV.

After a rare Saturay 3pm kick-off for both sides of the Old Firm last week, Ange Postecoglou’s team return to centre-stage with Sky Sports for the trip to Kilmarnock.

The Australian has never taken his side to the Ayrshire town, with Killie outside the top flight last season as Celtic took the league crown and the defending champions are much changed from their last visit, and the atmosphere certainly will be with crowds now back in for the matches following the easing of Covid restrictions that limited attendance at the last meeting of the sides down the M77.
