Rarely-seen player starts in five changes: Celtic expected XI v Kilmarnock

GOALKEEPER AND DEFENCE

Scott Bain (Goalkeeper) – Expected to keep his place in the team after replacing the injured Craig Gordon against Hearts, hasn’t let anybody down so far but will probably not be selected for the cup final.

Jack Hendry (Right-back) – CouldĀ replace Mikael Lustig, he is set to be a big player for the Hoops next season and has a chance to impress the Hoops manager if he turns in a good performance v Killie.

Dedryck Boyata – (Centre-back) – Expected to keep his place in the team after a great performance against Hearts, Brendan Rodgers gas been proven correct in keeping faith with the 27-year-old.

Kristoffer Ajer – (Centre-back) – Expected to keep his place in the first-team, his partnership with Dedryck Boyata is expected to be kept intact as the Hoops look ahead to the cup final v Motherwell.

Calvin Miller (Left-back) – There’s a chance he could come in to replace Callum McGregor. The rarely-seen understudy to Kieran Tierney can prove what he is made of if he turns is a good display against a powerful Killie attack.
