Rodgers experiment fails: Three things learned about Celtic in draw v Kilmarnock


Celtic and Kilmarnock played out a dull goalless draw at Celtic Park on Wednesday night.

The match was predictably low-key, as it was relatively meaningless for both teams, and Brendan Rodgers took the chance to make plenty of changes from the team which defeated Hearts on Sunday.

The likes of Patrick Roberts, Jozo Simunovic and Calvin Miller were given rare starts, with Roberts playing in an experimental ‘false nine’ role.

The most interesting moment of the first-half came when a Simunovic header was ruled out of offside, because fellow defender Kristoffer Ajer interfered with play.

The second-half brought an early chance for Stuart Armstrong, who should have done much better, then Jack Hendry missed a great chance with a free header which he somehow out wide of the post.
