History of the Kilmarnock v Celtic fixture

Kilmarnock prepare to entertain Celtic at Rugby Park on Sunday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 20 of the 102 games played, and losing 54.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Rugby Park was less than a year ago, in February 2008, where Celtic annihilated the Killie 1-5 in a Scottish F.A. Cup match.
