We must make life difficult for Celtic, says Steve Clarke

We must make life difficult for Celtic, says Steve Clarke

Steve Clarke wants his Kilmarnock to emulate their Ibrox performance when they take on Brendan Rodgers' Celtic.

A dramatic ending saw Killie claim a point for their battling display thanks to Chris Burke's injury-time goal.

The men from Ayrshire travel to the east end of Glasgow with the hosts on a run of 61 domestic games unbeaten.

Ahead of the game, Clarke said: "We have to go there with confidence and belief that we can get something out of the game.

 

"You also have to recognise that Celtic are very strong, their record since Brendan went there tells you they are very strong.

"We have to go there and make it as difficult an afternoon for Celtic.

"It’s important we go there and put on a good show. Hopefully there’ll be a good Kilmarnock support there as there was on Wednesday at Ibrox.

"There was a good support along and if we can get the same support there then we’ll try our very best for them to get a good result."

On-loan defender Stuart Findlay is back on familiar territory but he insists the players will pay no attention to Celtic's long unbeaten run.

He added: "You respect Celtic but you have to go into it the same way as you’d prepare for any other game.

"Don’t worry about their record, don’t worry about going to Celtic Park. Just worry about putting in a good performance for Kilmarnock and let the fans go home happy at the end of the 90 minutes."
