Kilmarnock face a trip to Celtic at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having taken no points from 73 of the 92 contests.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in November 2004, the The Bhoys carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a Scottish Premier match.
