Chris Sutton: This is who should start up front in Celtic clash v Kilmarnock
Chris Sutton believes that Celtic should play Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard as a strike partnership in the Scottish Premiership match against Kilmarnock on Saturday.
The French duo played as a partnership for the first-time in the game against Hearts on Tuesday and it was a success, both players scoring in the Hoops’s 3-1 victory.
Sutton, as shown by Football on BT Sport’s Twitter account, thinks that the Bhoys looked far more dangerous than they had in recent weeks with the two up-front.
“I think Dembélé and Edouard should play up front… they linked up really well and were a threat” he said.

Dembele’s goal against Hearts was his first since his goal against Motherwell in the Betfred Cup Final in November. The player was subject of plenty of speculation about his future during the January transfer window but will be in Glasgow until the summer.
Edouard has a chance to establish himself in the team in the absence of fellow striker Leigh Griffiths, who is out for a month with a calf injury.
The 20-year-old, who is on-loan from PSG, has scored six goals do far this season.
The Bhoys head into the match against Kilmarnock looking to maintain their 11 point lead of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, and are also trying to win four league games in a row for the first time this season.
